Jason takes on the role of Assistant Teacher for Marilyn’s Tango classes and is happy to be assisting her for this special Valentine event.
What to wear?
- You want to dress up for your night on the town, but it’s also important to feel comfortable dancing.
- Comfortable shoes that won’t fall off. You’ll be on your feet, and you’ll be busting a move! Wearing heels? An ankle strap is helpful.
- Clothes that don’t impede your movement. Can you move your arms? Can you move your legs? Can you carry a cocktail?
Do I have to have prior dance experience?
- No- not to worry! We are all beginners at something, and we want you to have fun!
Single vs. Couple?
- No partner? No problem! There will be plenty of people to dance with.
- You can bring a dance partner or mix and mingle- everyone is welcome.
