Our monthly EMPANADA MILONGA at ST. CLEMENT'S BERKELEY will be a party like no other, featuring the fun and popular teachers from Buenos Aires DIEGO LANAU and ALEJANDRA SARAVIA for a 1+ hr tango workshop and demo.  Diego has been one of the most popular Argentine tango teachers for the last decade in the Bay Area and with his exquisite partner and wife Alejandra Saravia, bring the beauty and joy of Argentine tango to our home in Berkeley.


But wait, there's more!


Immediately following Diego and Alejandra's class will be our live-music dance party, this month featuring the piano/guitar duo of maestros Elyse Weakley and Scott O'Day, both legendary local recording artists and co- faculty members of the San Francisco Community Music Center.  You heard them last year at Tango de Orinda, and we loved them so much that we invited them to Berkeley for our listening and tango dancing pleasure. 


(When our home band Orquesta Z is unavailable, we curate the very best musicians to play beautiful, danceable tangos for you.  Elyse and Scott really are the best...you will love them and we thank them so much to agree to play for us!)


Between sets we present our great DJ Don An to entertain us with his well-curated selection of danceable Argentine tangos tradition, and of course, we will include our famous complimentary refreshments and fine Argentine wines. 

Come celebrate Argentine tango at the sweetest afternoon milonga in the Bay Area with some of the friendliest and best dancers!
