Two Moon Tango News:
May this find you safe and well. I have been monitoring the unfolding situation with the Corona virus outbreak. I am wanting to meet this with an abundance of caution here at Two Moon Tango.
Given the intimate nature of our dance and the fact that we are mostly an older population, Two Moon Tango has closed as of March 12 and will remain so until further notice. All milongas, classes, workshops and other events will be canceled until it is deemed safe to reopen. Alicia Pons will not be teaching at Two Moon this Spring.
For those that may not have heard, my beloved life partner, Masami Hirokawa, passed away on August 29, 2019. Send a love to him wherever he is. Bob Bern is currently assisting me with my teaching.

Tango I & II
This class is temporarily cancelled. In the interim we are offering private and semi-private work and the following workshops: "Essentials to Close Embrace Tango".
This is a fun, relaxed class focusing on all the fundamentals of close-embrace Argentine tango. In these classes you will learn the social form of tango danced in the traditional dance halls of Buenos Aires. This is a non-flash style based on a natural walk, focused on improvisation, mutual creativity, and connection with your partner. Anyone beginning tango, wanting to work with the fundamentals and milonga-friendly figures, or anyone wanting to become comfortable with close embrace tango and prepare for dancing in the Milongas (dance events) is welcome. Partners not necessary. If you know of anyone interested in starting tango, forward this on to them! If you are coming for the first time and/or would like more info call Liz at 505-699-0106 or email me at

Women Leaders Workshops:
TBA. These fun workshop days are designed for women wanting to learn to lead. We will be role-reversing and working on what feels best for both leaders and followers. Open to all levels, this class focuses on deep basics: connection, posture, stability, expression, and figures for a social dance floor. 2 classes each day. $50/day.
We focus on building technical skills to increase balance, stability, and beauty, as well as exploring internal dynamics to maximize your dance. If you are wanting to work on follower's technique, please email me. Will will run a class as soon as we have a full group.
