Housing still needed for out-of-town guests for Alex Krebs tango weekend Mar 10-12

We would like to thank those who have already offered housing for
out-of-town guests for the upcoming Alex Krebs tango weekend March
10-12. However, we are expecting a greater number than usual of
out-of-town guests this time and we currently still have several
visiting tangueros for whom we have not been able to find housing. If
you have a spare bed, sofa or futon or even some carpeted floor space
(some travellers bring their own air mattresses) that you can offer
for the Mar 10-12 weekend, please let us know ASAP. We are really
known as a hospitable tango community and these acts of generosity are
reciprocated when we travel elsewhere.

Thanking you in advance for your kindness,

Ron & Susana

Champaign: Carlota's Tango Technique Class-New Series

Dear Dancers,

I will be offering a new series of Carlota's Tango Technique class beginning
this coming Sunday March 5, 2:30 - 3:30 pm. The next classes will meet every
other Sunday, March 19 and April 2.

This is an excellent chance to brush up on your technique for upcoming
classes and workshops.

Remember ladies, bring comfortable flats (jazz, ballet or martial arts
shoes) or low heeled, flexible shoes. Men wear a comfortable shoe with
smooth sole that allows you to pivot. This is designed as an exercise class
that you take solo, so we won't be dancing with partners.

Looking forward to seeing you there,
Carlota

CARLOTA'S TANGO TECHNIQUE FOR WOMEN AND MEN
...........................................

Carlota's tango technique is a series of exercises for individuals designed
to improve skills in posture, balance, axis, alignment, torsion, pivoting,
turning and flexibility.

The classes provide a method for training yourself in the core physical
movements of Argentine tango. Strengthen your repertoire of movement skills
and build confidence for dancing with any partner. Discover how
embellishments and styling stem from functional technique.

Learn how to execute your tango moves with style and precision.
