Ruben "Milonga" will be here again in late February and early March. For
those of you who have not had the opportunity to meet him, Ruben is an excellent

preserving Argentine tango as it was danced during the "golden years."

LECTURE: TANGO; THE DANCE illustrated by life-sized videos (1:00-3:00 pm)
( I have attended the same lecture Ruben gave several days earlier in Monterrey. It was packed with historic material up to 1960 and unique videos of great social dancers. People were very impressed.
