Come work on technique from class that you want to perfect or just to dance! Teachers will be present to help with questions or demonstrations. Have you learned something you'd like to share? Contact Julie about teaching a 15-minute lesson.
M&M dance and teach all over the world. As teachers they're approachable, clear, dynamic, and very funny; as dancers they're an incredible treat to watch. A chance to spend a whole weekend learning from them is not to be missed!

We are trying a NEW FORMAT for our Thursday night classes beginning April 19th. We will have THREE 1-hour classes beginning at 6:15 pm!

Tango Basics Classes are for anyone who wants to learn this wonderful dance. No experience or partner necessary. We rotate partners throughout class. Please bring slippery-soled shoes (no street shoes on the dance floor).

Beyond Basics Classes are for those who have had at least two six-week series of Tango Basics classes. This is the place to continue to work on your technique and start learning a bit more complicated moves, but still at a relatively slow pace. This is considered an upper-level Beginner's class. $45 per person, $80 per couple.
Continuing Tango Classes are great for experienced dancers wanting to learn intermediate moves and technique. The pace of this class is somewhat faster. Prerequisite: two six-week Beyond Basics classes (or equivalent) and permission of the instructor. (Please talk to your instructor if you are ready to graduate into Continuing Tango, or Contact TangoHelena.) $45 per person, $80 per couple.

Putting on the M & M workshop is a community effort and we can use all the help we can get! If you're interested in helping 3.out in any way, please contact Grace. She has a long list of volunteer opportunities, including everything from buying snacks to staffing the registration desk to decorating for the milonga. The master volunteer list will also be available for sign up at our classes, practicas, and milongas. You can look it over on the TangoHelena M&M workshop page, and decide what you want to do. Any help you can give would be WAY appreciated!
