About this Event

Don't miss our monthly Potluck Practilonga, the first Friday of every month!There will be a tango lesson at 7-8pm taught by Jorge and Penny. Then there will be open dancing until 10:45 DJ'ed by Kimberly Scola from Cleveland. This is a great opportunity to practice and enjoy what you have learned so far as well as meet new dancers :) The instructors will be available to help us out, give feedback, and answer questions.

Kim came into the tango world in 2012 as a Salsa dancer and quickly fell in love with the dance. Very soon after that, she began to be interested in the music itself. After some encouragement from organizers Timmy Tango and Joanne Pogros, she started working in Cleveland as a guest DJ. Her experience as a DJ has expanded over the years, DJing for the regular milongas in her community, as well as traveling to other communities to play for their events and festivals. She has been influenced greatly by Hernán Prieto, as she attended his DJ seminars and learned how to follow many of his techniques. Kim’s style is characterized by creating a positive, upbeat environment that builds and sustains the energy on the dance floor until the end of the evening when she likes to bring the energy back down with sultry, romantic tandas. She likes to express her own personality with her very carefully chosen cortinas, and she loves connecting with other dancers through the music. She hopes to continue developing connections with other communities and having the privilege of sharing her love for Tango music all over the world.

Beginners are always welcome! Our instructors pay individual attention to everyone, so we believe you will benefit from attending regardless of your dance experience.
