This weekend, May 11 and 12th, is an excellent opportunity to switch roles in Tango!
Have you always wanted to learn how to lead or follow but felt it was not acceptable. This weekend is your chance to dance an alternative role in a friendly welcoming environment. Increase your fun by leading or following and then switching! Learning the alternative role provides you with greater understanding and appreciation of the dance. Classes are with the ever popular Bay Area instructors, Dan & Pier and Christopher & Caroline, whom are all excellent at leading and following!
Highlights: Friday night DJ Dan will be spinning his vinyl collection of alternative and traditional tango music. A treat on it’s own. Plus there will be a raffle fundraiser for the 4th Annual SF International Queer Tango Festival June 2012.
