This is an informal práctica open to everyone to dance and engage their tango.  No partner necessary, and dancing at ALL levels from “Just Walking” to “Just Wowing” is strongly encouraged.  Host, DJ and other community dancers will be available for guidance, to answer questions, demonstrate technique and generally explore everything Argentine Tango.  

Expect as much dialogue and demonstration in the middle of the floor as action in the line of dance!

Come on out and savor the experience!
