Tango night at Eiffel!

Free tango lessons from 7-8 p.m.! $5 Sangria! Then dancing until 10 p.m.!
I'm committed to playing with dance much more in 2014. I don't have dance experience, hardly, and certainly not Tango - so no need to have experience to attend! Want to join me? Let's try new things in 2014 and not be afraid of learning and making mistakes! Sounds fun!

      Hahaha! Me too! I finally got on the dance floor at the end of the night and the guy trying to teach me had to be SOOO patient! I finally got it but it took a LONG time! He stuck it out and we both felt accomplished that I finally managed to get the steps! I need a LOT of repetition! :)

    I'm really disappointed I missed the Tango lessons. I hope there's another lesson soon.

    January 21, 2014

    • Carla R.

      Michelle, sorry to miss you! They have lessons every Tuesday night, but not next Tuesday. It was a great venue - great teachers and lots of accomplished tango dancers, but room for beginners too!

    YEY! That was so cool and so fun! I enjoyed meeting you ladies! We should definitely do it again. I look forward to seeing you all again soon!

      So great to meet you, Brenna! Very fun! Great evening - thank you for making the suggestion!

      January 21, 2014

  • Carla R.

    That was fun! Had no idea what a beautiful dance Tango is - way more fun to watch than I realized! A bunch of us got out and danced and I finally learned some steps at the very end! I'm a slow learner but started to get it finally! Great to see everyone!

    I've never been there so are we all meeting in a certain area (not sure how big it is in there)? I'm excited for Tango! :)

    January 21, 2014

  • Carla R.

    Tango, tango! Don't worry about what to wear - I will probably be in jeans and a sweater! Tango it up if you like, but don't stay away because you have outfit concerns - I know that feeling and it's not fun - no worries! We can learn some tango wearing anything at all! And having some sangria or sparkling soda doesn't require special clothing! Looking forward to seeing/meeting everyone tonight! Yay!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone! I'll be there, but a little late - closer to 7:20 - so y'all start meeting up and enjoying the lessons without me! I'll be there with name tags eventually! Looking forward to seeing and meeting everyone! My cell is[masked] but I won't be picking up until after 7 p.m. as I have a client till 7. Cheers and see you tomorrow!

    Is the streetcar safe to take at night? Was going to do that instead of driving from warehouse district.

    January 18, 2014

    • Yasemin

      There is no parking problem there. I'd say drive.

      2 · January 18, 2014

      The streetcar is very safe.

    Haven't been to this since before Mardi Gras 2013! I love Tango! I'm saying yes, but there's a chance I won't make it.

    I've got a wee bit of experience with tango, so I have this to offer as advice:

    You really need to be able to slide the balls of your feet across the floor as you dance, so it's easiest if you wear shoes that allow for this. Leather soles are best. If not leather, then something that's on the slick side, and definitely not something with a rubber sole and lots of grip. Some people practice in socks, but since there are lots of beginners at this tango lesson, I don't recommend this as you'll most likely encounter guys who unwittingly step on your feet.

      Also, some people put masking tape on their soles. This can help as well...

      2 · January 2, 2014

    • Carla R.

      Thanks for all the tips, Betty!

    I am going to try this... never tangoed before. Great!

    Wanting to go on the 21st but I am new to the Tango and this group, how do I know who is part of this meetup when I go there?

      Carla usually brings name tags for her group so that we can identify each other, I bet she'll do that.

      2 · January 16, 2014

    • Carla R.

      Hi everyone! I will be a bit late to this one - I have a client until 7 p.m. So you all are on your own a bit - be friendly - find each other - all will be well! Yay!

      January 18, 2014

  • Thea P.

    I'm bringing a man is it all going to be women anyone bringing a man?

    January 17, 2014

    • Yasemin

      As often the case, there were already more women than men in the last two weeks. It's a good idea to bring men who want to dance.

      January 17, 2014

    • Carla R.

      Men are awesome!

      January 18, 2014

  • Kaylee

    I work at that night

    January 18, 2014

      Sorry we'll miss you!

    was there last Tuesday, pretty much first time with tango and first time with this group (although did not get a chance to meet anyone, had no idea who was who). Had a great time anyway. Great instructors. Will go back next Tuesday.

      I won't say anything anything about your birthday. Sounds pretty bad.

      Thanks, Carla, but this won't change until I have a knee replacement, sadly. So a few years probably.

    YEY! I'm excited! I can't wait to meet you ladies!
