This is another free tango event, part of National Dance Week. (Those of us who came to Sonja's class earlier this week had a lot of positive feedback.)
At 6:30, we'll have a little pre-lesson meetup at Starbucks, a couple of blocks from the venue, 350 Rhode Island St (btwn 16 & 17th St). Then at 6:55 we'll walk over to the venue for the lesson, concert, and dancing.
Come celebrate "Best Tango Teacher" Sonja Riket's golden anniversary of a 50 year-long dance career as a worldwide performer, dance educator and community arts organizer. Take a Tango class with Sonja then witness the burgeoning Tango Youth Project: a collaboration between young musicians from highschools and conservatories and mature expert musicians! Enjoy dancing Tango till midnight surrounded by exquisite murals! Snacks and wine available. Bring your own to add to the celebration! (no hard liquor please)
