Here’s what Robert and Daphne are saying: “We will be teaching you what we have learned that will help get you on the fast track to dancing Argentine Tango well. We had a good turnout on our 5th Friday blue moon Practilonga. We are grateful for all of you who showed up with your curiosity and for allowing us to witness your tango birth and your re-parenting of your tango. Amazing how some of you who call yourself beginners experience beauty in your walk, and we feel them when we dance with you. I (David) mangled up TTE-the step that I was supposed to teach, and I promise to get a better version of it recorded on video along with an explanation of how to use it to expand your own tang ...

Stay for the other dances at no extra charge. If you miss weeks, you can make them up. If you have not been through our Beginner 1 series, you can still join this Beginner 2 if you do not mind being a little behind. We have a Beginner 1 series starting on June 7. If you have already taken our Beginner 2 series or you are an experienced dancer, you can drop in for $10 per night. Invite others. Congregation B'nai Israel, 3830 NW 16th Blvd, Gainesville, 32605.
