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!

Friday 4/28/23
7:30 pm to 9:00 pm:  Let’s improve our performance with self-diagnosis!

Saturday 4/29/23
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm:  Maybe not a Ferrari, there are all types of wonderful rides!
3:00 pm to 4:30 pm:  Pilot and co-pilot: Really connect with your dance partner!
8:00 pm to 12:00 am:  Milonga de las Puertas – DJ: TBA

Sunday 4/30/23
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm:  Is your car in optimal condition?  Master the ‘Wheel’ for the different ‘roads.’
3:00 pm to 4:30 pm:  Would you drive with snow chains in summer?  Lets drive the smooth and
melodic roads of Di Sarli, Calo, and Demare!
