Workshops and Milonga with Judy & Jon Feb 10-11, 2018 in Gainesville

Thanks to everyone who came to last month’s milonga! We had a full house with great energy all the way to the end!

This month we welcome back Judy and Jon from Las Vegas! Judy & Jon have been teaching all over the world for decades and even taught for a decade in Buenos Aires to Argentinians and have been recognized by the City of Buenos Aires as authentic milonguero close embrace style teachers!

Judy & Jon Margolis

They have millions of tips and stories from the old milongueros they studied with and share them with us now. What we learn from them is invaluable knowledge for social dancing in any milonga in the world, including the most famous traditional milongas in Buenos Aires today.

Don’t miss it!

Private lessons are also available so call them direct on their cell phone as soon as possible to start scheduling privates starting around Friday Feb 9, 2018! 1 hour Private Lesson for one student (or a couple) with both Judy & Jon together $110. 3 hours for $300:  Call Judy’s Cell phone to reserve private lessons: 520-907-2050
