Road Trip to Montreal, March 6-8, 2020

Join us for a Siempre Tango road trip to Montreal the weekend of March 6-8. (Someone correct us if we’re wrong, but we think this is the first official Siempre road trip.)

We’re going to go see (and dance to) the La Juan D’Arienzo Orchestra and drop into different milongas throughout the weekend.

If you’ve been dancing for a while but haven’t visited Montreal to dance, it’s a perfect way for you to explore Montreal’s tango scene surrounded by your friends!

More importantly, this is a rare chance to dance to a 10-piece orquesta tipica. Check out this video to see what we’re really excited about: https://youtu.be/vl7M2TAKoic

We’ll rendezvous as group for a couple of meals and at certain milongas.
