TangoLife Updates 011320

Hello TangoLovers,

What a great turn out at the Wednesday lesson + practica last week! Was it the New Year resolutions? Was it the Pizza? Whatever, just keep dancing in 2020!

Unless….there’s much snow or ice. Or loss of power. If you don’t feel safe to drive, stay home and practice there! That includes private and group lessons at my home studio (msg me if possible). If I feel it is generally unsafe for most of us to get to Wednesday lesson+practica, I will post a note of Cancellation by 4 pm (or earlier) on the Facebook event which David Beaumier puts out for us. I will also post Cancellation on my website calendar.

That being said, this week is apparently our official winter. I’ll keep you posted re: Wednesday. Tuesday class: Msg me individually. I see there’s more snow predicted from 7 pm tomorrow evening. :-/

On the bright side, we are all grateful that Jeff Westcott has stepped up to host events for all of us! His newest one is Sunday, February 2, and is the kick-off event for his new “UNITY MILONGA”. Music will be all traditional, DJ’s will vary. Held at Bellingham Dance Company’s cozy ballroom with a great wood floor. All levels invited. PLEASE join us! Let’s keep the momentum going! First Sunday’s in Bellingham are back!
