From 7:00-9:00 you will enjoy a fantastic show highlighting the many moods of Argentine Tango. After 9:00 the Audience will stay to enjoy social dancing. If you already dance Argentine Tango this is your chance to support your friends and if you have never danced this is a wonderful evening to experience both the performance side and the social side of Tango.
