NOTE: This meetup is full for couples and single ladies. If you are a single male who would like to attend to help gender-balance the group, contact us, Debbie and Richard, through our meetup group and we will add your name to the RSVP list. The RSVP setting has been turned off for this meetup, so you will not be able to RSVP yourself. We have room for a few more fellas, but that's it!

Cost: $10 per person; plus, your food &/or drink purchase at Cucuru's

A unique opportunity for beginning Argentine tango dancers...

If you love to dance, read books, and eat good food, this meetup is for you! On Saturday, July 20th, from 9:30am-11:30am, our dance meetup group will be meeting-up with a book club meetup group for an Argentine tango lesson, a tango discussion, and some great food at Cucuru Gallery Cafe in Old Colorado City.

The 'Good Reads Over Coffee' meetup group is reading the book Shut Up and Dance by Jamie Rose, which is based on the true story of the author's journey of learning to dance tango and how it changed her life. This meetup group would like to experience a tango lesson and a tango discussion in order to have a more in-depth understanding of the book they are reading. To learn more about this book and meetup group, click on the following link:

If you plan to attend this meetup, you must RSVP on our meetup calendar to ensure we have enough space set aside for our combined meetup groups. Cucuru's is the perfect place for this event, but they do have limited space and staff, so they need to know in advance how many to expect. And, depending on the response, we may have to limit our RSVPs. So, if you want to come, RSVP now, or it may be too late! Also, if you RSVP, be sure to show up!

As always, both couples and singles are welcome! You do not need to have a partner or have any previous dance experience to attend. Just come ready to have fun, learn, and meet new people. (And, who knows, maybe this will be the beginning of a life-changing experience for you too...!) Also, if you would like to see the basic step that you will be learning at Cucuru's, click on the following instructional video:

Looking forward to this unique tango-treat for beginning tango-dancers!

PS In addition to the above, if you are reading this book, here are two YouTube videos that go well with page 64, "The Shopping Cart Tango."

If you want to see more, go to the file section of our meetup group (link below) and scroll down to "Argentine Tango YouTube Videos." Lots of amazing dancing and entertaining videos! (Note, only members of our meetup group will be able to access our file section.)
