Covid-19 Update, April 13, 2021:
From the Covid19.ca.gov website: "California aims to fully reopen June 15. The move forward comes as the state has reached 20 million vaccinations, including 4 million in its hardest-hit communities. Masking and vaccinations will continue. Hospitalization rates must stay low and vaccination availability high for the state to fully reopen." In addition, as of April 15, 2021, it appears that Tango by the River will be allowed to have more people at the studio as long as hospitalization rates remain low. We will keep you informed as we draw near that date.
In the meantime, we are open for limited-size group classes and milongas with the following restrictions:
A maximum of 8 couples at any one time, for a milonga or a class.
Couples only -- couples must register together and dance together; switching partners is prohibited.
Masks are required.
Our limited capacity means that patrons must register on our website in advance so that we can limit the number of guests. Walk-ins will not be allowed. This applies to both classes and milongas.
Milongas (couples only)
Our milongas are held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month. Our upcoming milongas are:

Tango by the River ~ July 31, 2018
"When the rest of the world slips away and it's just you and your partner moving in synchronicity with each other and the music . . . that's tango. And that's why I started dancing this dance. Well, that and the great shoes!" -- Donna Tielsch, Tango by the River
