This Week at Cape Ballroom:

12th of August - Dance with Tango Lesson.

Learn the American Tango this Friday, August 12th, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Cape Ballroom!

The evening begins at 7:00 p.m. sharp, with a 30-minute lesson in the American Tango!
What do "Sweet Dreams" by The Eurythmics, "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" by The Rolling Stones, and "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga all have in common? You can dance Tango to them! Don't be scared off by the sensual Argentine Tangos you've seen in the movies. American Tango is a more structured and open-hold dance , like Waltz, that you can feel comfortable dancing in front of your parents or your kids. Dramatic, yet fun, dancing the American Tango should be on your bucket list!

The lesson will be followed by dancing to mixed ballroom music, until 9:00pm. Electric Slide and Cupid Shuffle line dances included.
Just $5/person at the door.
Dance Partners Required!. Participants must arrange their own dance partner for the lesson and dance.
No smoking. No alcohol. Water is available. Bring your own snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.

Cape Ballroom Friday Night Dances are held 7-9 p.m. at the American Legion Hall, 2731 Thomas Drive, Cape Girardeau, MO 63701.
