Susana Miller at Milonga El Abrazo de Gainesville Saturday May 12, 2018 6:30 pm at Rosa B

Wow!!!

Thanks everybody who came out last month! It was our biggest, bestest milonga yet in collaboration with UF Tango Weekend Spring 2018 with special guest Yari Helfeld! Also Robert & Daphne did a wonderful demo for us which we all enjoyed after placing 2nd in the Senior Salon Division at ATUSA in SFO 4-1-2018.

We had many guests from Destin, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, St. Pete., San Juan Puerto Rico, Buenos Aires and others!
The house was packed and jumping with energy all the way to the end, and then some! We had 43 dancers and a beautiful ronda all night long!
