After another great New Year's Eve party at Victor's Eye
Candy studio, it appears that that will be the last event
at that studio. When Victor returns from Argentina, he
will resume teaching but at a new location. Many thanks to
Victor Collins and the entire Collins family that worked
so hard and donated so much to make it available to us.
And thus passes a location that has been a mainstay of
the Houston tango community for quite a few years. Sigh.
Martin & Natia will have a free Friday night class this
week only, Jan 9, 7-8pm.
The Gypsies have scheduled their Julian New Year Party for
this Sunday, Jan 11, from 5:30pm-midnight at City Streets.
This is always a fun party, where a huge cross section of
Houston dancers can mix and mingle. In past years, nearly
a thousand people have attended. More details to follow.
