We met our liaison, Ellen Yong, for Japanese food in downtown Denver after a nine hour drive out of the plains and officially into "the west". Ellen, an organizer for Tom Stermitz gave us an in depth low down about Tango Colorado and what to expect that night. It ended up that 40 people participated in our musicality class and 100+ people danced during the practica. A lot of folks were still in town from the Denver Memorial Day tango festival, and overall there was a lot of enthusiasm for what we did.
It was exciting to build an energetic rapport with all the dancers through our music, and it was great fun dancing in between our sets. The only regrets I have for the night is that we were so engrossed that we forgot about taking photos!
