Weekend Workshop Concepts:

“Dancing with you is like driving a Ferrari, too bad we’re in rush hour”
A few years ago dancing in Cachirulo at 444 Maipu Street in Buenos Aires, a
milonguero said this to Monica.  Remembering these words has shaped her
idea for this wonderful weekend of workshops!

Saturday 4/29/23
