Hi Alex,

I have been reading your blog for a few weeks and enjoying your posts, especially the videos. Are you in Austin? I will be visiting there for a conference in a few weeks and wondered if you can recommend any milonga or practica there during weekdays?

Hi Sarah! Thanks for reading/watching!

I am in Aspen right now, but will be back in Austin on Jan 7 or 8. Go to www.austintango.org for a calendar of activities. It's a cool calendar with links to locations, phone numbers and maps. The only practicas I know of are Friday nights (University of Texas Tango), and a long running practica on Sunday nights. Let me know when you will be there and perhaps we can get together to practice or dance. Oh, there is also a milonga on Thursday nights (most weeks) at Lambert's - with live music by GloverTango (Glover Gill - the "famous" Austin based tango composer, pianist, and accordianist). It's always fun and a cool venue - even if the dance floor is oddly shaped...
