We went back and looked at our favorite post from each month in 2018 and put them together in one place for you. It was hard to choose from all the milongas, classes, workshops and more!

Only an Intermission not Goodbye

July 31 2017

This past Sunday was the last dance for Practica de los Colibries until Jessica returns. Jessica is off to go travel for a few months. She has been running a practica every Sunday until this week. We here at 505 Tango are going to miss her positive energy and passion for tango. During her time running the practica Jessica has worked hard to help introduce new people to tango. Part of her efforts have brought in guest teachers.
