We enjoyed Salon Canning so much that we went twice during our trip of 10 days. The second time, we took the class beforehand--arrive on time. This one did not start late as did most of the classes we attended. It was advanced as advertised....More

According to my more experienced tango friends, this is "the" Milonga to go to. We went somewhat late on a Friday night and it was very dense, although we were still able to get a table in the back by the DJ. Danced a couple...More
