Description

Get your Argentine tango in 2016 off to a great start! Join the Vanderbilt Tango Club for workshops featuring the talents of Maria Elena Ybarra and London Hong on Saturday January 23 and Sunday January 24. Vamos!

Classes will be $50 per day ($40 for students). Each day will consist of two classes, each lasting for roughly two hours, with a short break in between.

For more seasoned dancers, this will provide you with new insights and vocabulary to further solidify your Argentine tango!
