A BIG “THANK YOU” FROM PARADISO!

DEAR TANGO FRIENDS,

Our Paradiso team (myself, Patricia and Mark) is very grateful to all of you – our local tangueros/tangueras, all the organizers and teachers who showed up last Friday – for attending our 19th anniversary celebration and for making it a success! We will never get tired saying how much we appreciate your on-going support – you give us reasons for our Friday nights every time we run Paradiso Milonga! Big special “Thank You” to our friend Yesim who was our wonderful d.j. and Adriana and Orlando for their sparkling fireworks demo! 

These past 19 years flew by but we still remember the highlights: the great Buenos Aires maestros/maestras we brought over, the orchestras, the various d.j.s and the performers! And, most importantly, meeting with you, our tango friends – and dancing, dancing, dancing! We did it, as our logo says, “for the love of tango” and in return it enriched our lives and, hopefully, yours too! So we are going to continue our passion: for all of you and for tango! Here is to the next big celebration – our 20th anniversary on April 7 in 2017!

Dear tango friends,

Eduardo Cappussi and Mariana Flores – great milonga masters!


Does anybody want to see a great example of a milonga?! Here it is – by none other than great Eduardo Cappussi and Mariana Flores of Buenos Aires! For some reason, there was no YouTube link so I am posting a link to my FB page. Hope you enjoy it!
