I enjoyed our trip to New Orleans, and now back to home sweet home SAN FRANCISCO!

NTW starting from 7/2-5, the question was how many milongas do I want to go during the event?  Kinda expensive, right?! But I’ve already signed up for two open to public seminars (Seba y Roxana & Los Totis’ afternoon workshops. 3hrs each), plus some of my girl friends started making lots of noises making plans to crash the milongas.  OK. I am sold. Going out for all 4 nights!

Next question was how we were going to bring more SF local dancers with us. Seriously, it’s not the same with out you folks and more the merrier during any festivals.  The Good news came the next day: we managed to get the group discount for milonga entries!

So join us, people!  Let’s welcome out of town visitors and have a blast together over the July 4th weekend at NTW. For the next few days, I will keep posting some info about the events to gather us together.  Please spread the word for me!

How to get the discount?  Write to me (Yumiko) at with your full name and the night(s) you are coming, then I will put you on the VIP list. All you have to do is mention my name YUMIKO and pay $25/milonga (regular price is $35) at the reception. CASH ONLY.

Hope to see you at the milongas. Cheers!
