Dear tango friends!
Viva Tango is going on a hiatus for the holiday season. We are also looking for a new location – our beloved studio Gallery 814 is closing its doors. We are looking for another location, hoping to find a convenient and cosy place for all the participants to enjoy their tango on Tuesday nights. We have one more evening at the Gallery – and it’s tomorrow, Tuesday October 30th. 
It’s going to be free for all participants – our treat! Looking forward to seeing you – and feel free to bring friends! We will tango on!

These tips are useful but they missed one really important one: DON’T LOOK LIKE A TOURIST! I’ve been to B.A. many times, stayed mostly in San Telmo and later on Avenida de Mayo in Congresso, walked home from a milonga in San Telmo after 1 am – and never got in any trouble. Yes, those were different times... But a fellow tanguero form Germany was robbed of his wallet in a broad daylight in a middle of downtown during those “different” times simply because his outfit was screaming “I am a tourist”: among “classically” dressed locals in a monochrome colours of B.A. fall he looked like a canary on a walk... 
Any tip is useful when visiting Buenos Aires – but the main suggestion is to use your common sense!

I am very happy to announce that my friend and maestra (of maestros!) Graciela Gonzalez is coming to Toronto again! She will partner with a renown dancer and teacher Leonardo Sardella for a demo at Paradiso during our annual Black & White Ball (Dec. 2) and for weekend workshops (Dec. 3-4): a not-to-be-missed event! Here is the flyer!

Our Paradiso team (myself, Patricia and Mark) is very grateful to all of you – our local tangueros/tangueras, all the organizers and teachers who showed up last Friday – for attending our 19th anniversary celebration and for making it a success! We will never get tired saying how much we appreciate your on-going support – you give us reasons for our Friday nights every time we run Paradiso Milonga! Big special “Thank You” to our friend Yesim who was our wonderful d.j. and Adriana and Orlando for their sparkling fireworks demo! 

These past 19 years flew by but we still remember the highlights: the great Buenos Aires maestros/maestras we brought over, the orchestras, the various d.j.s and the performers! And, most importantly, meeting with you, our tango friends – and dancing, dancing, dancing! We did it, as our logo says, “for the love of tango” and in return it enriched our lives and, hopefully, yours too! So we are going to continue our passion: for all of you and for tango! Here is to the next big celebration – our 20th anniversary on April 7 in 2017!
