PLUS...

(3) Weekly Sunday classes all day long followed by Salsa dancing
at 7pm and a Tango Milonga from 8-11 with DJ David Liu

(but if you did, the next UNDER TANGO Milonga is coming up in March at a local embassy...and Sunday classes and dancing are ongoing with Rene' and Terry plus the incredible music of DJ David Liu)

 


Tango Under alternative music Milonga UNDER TANGO
Valentine Milonga on Feb 11 was
an Argentine Tango Milonga to alternative music
hosted by Tango Brillante

we may decide to "TAKE DOWN THAT WALL, MR GORBACHEV" after 11pm)

Join Tango Brillante once again in the future for another incredibly fun and unique way of dancing Argentine Tango from 8:30pm into the wee hours of the morning ...all danced to the alternative 'NON-TANGO' music that each of us love and listen to every day of the year on the radio & internet, TV and in the movies by such great artists as Beyonce, Lady GaGa, Usher, Michael Jackson, the Bee Gees, Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston, the Black Eyed Peas, Bono, Nat King & Natalie Cole, Bon Jovi, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Ricky Martin, Katey Perry, Glee, Cher, James Brown, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Martha Washington, 'The Divine Miss M' (Bette Midler), Jennifer Hudson, ABBA, Michael Buble', The Four Seasons, Josh Groban, Enrique Iglesias and many, many more. We did this in December over the holidays and it was a HUGE success so we're doing it again on Friday, Jan 14, and Feb 11 at the Chevy Chase Ballroom. Bring your friends along with any refreshments or snacks that you may wish to share and JOIN US for another fun-filled TANGO UNDER Milonga.

All levels of Tango dancers are welcome and encouraged. Rene' and Terry plus our multitude of more experienced dancers who are readily willing to help less-experienced Tangueros will be on hand throughout. Bring your comrads and come EN MASSE! It's always more fun when you bring friends and family members that you can practice with throughout the week! Try not to miss this unique and guaranteed-to-be-fun celebration of this versatile and artistic dance, the official dance of Buenos Aires, Argentine Tango. You need not come with a dance partner. All are welcome and encouraged of any adult age group, including singles, couples, same-gender couples and the seeing and hearing impaired (limited ASL avail).

Now THAT'LL take your breath away!!)

."We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance" ~ Japanese proverb

. Make "I can" an integral part of your vocabulary. Whenever you're tempted to say
"I can't," stop, take a deep breath, and imagine what would happen if you gave
it your all.

. To have a passion that brings Joy to one's life and to fail sharing that passion with others is
a direct insult to the God who gave it...(regardless of whichever God that might be...).

. Courage is being afraid to do something, but making the decision to do it, anyway...
For some people, it takes "Courage".....to DANCE!!
