Tango de los Muertos pre-registration closes in 10 days
- Hello NY dancers,
Pre-registration for Tango de los Muertos workshops closes on October
Workshops have been filling up very quickly and there are only 10 days
of pre-registration left! Many workshops are already full for
followers and only have a few spaces left for leaders. Since more
followers than leaders have registered for workshops and we want to
keep workshops balanced, we've placed a hold on all follower workshop
registration to allow leader registration to catch up.
Depending on how the workshop balance looks in a week or two, we may
re-open some of the workshops for a few days during pre-registration
(of course, only the ones that are "On Hold" and not the ones that
already say "Full"). Or we may re-open those workshops only when
registering with a partner at the door. Whatever happens, whether we
re-open some workshops for followers during pre-registration or not,
we will announce this first on our festival mailing list. (You can
sign up on the TdlM festival home page:
Although we would like to accommodate everyone in the workshops, we
care more that the people who are in a workshop have someone to dance
with! So ladies, your best chance for getting into workshops is to
encourage all your leader-friends to sign up quickly!

We've added Beginning workshops with Robin Thomas and Kyla Mares!
In conjunction with Tango de los Muertos, the MIT Tango Club hosts
Beginning Tango workshops with two of North America's best-loved tango
instructors: Robin Thomas and Kyla Mares. The classes will be held at
MIT in Cambridge. The workshops on Saturday are intended for total
Beginners or people who want to review their basics, and the workshops
on Sunday are for Advanced Beginning Argentine Tango dancers and
people who took the previous day's classes. For more information and
to register, go to http://www.tangodelosmuertos.com/MITbeginning.html
And, don't forget about the Costume Themes!
Of course you don't have to wear a costume, but if you choose to, here
are the themes, briefly:
Thursday Dia de los Muertos Milonga
Are you Pancho Villa or a bag of bones?
Friday The Language Milonga
Communicate and connect through the written word, written ON you...
Saturday Gods and Goddesses Milonga
Be a Greek god or Marilyn Monroe, but always be elegant and glamourous.
Sunday November 9 The Natural World Milonga
Dress as a plant, mammal, insect, land form or weather pattern.
For more information about the themes, including costume cautions,
check out the Milonga Info page here:
We are truly excited to present you with this festival! So please plan
to join us, but don't forget to register early!
