If you’re driving to Caltech, it’s best to park in one of the parking structures on campus (see map) -- DO NOT PARK ON THE STREET! (if you're staying past midnight) Otherwise, you will get ticketed at 2AM. The Caltech parking structures are free to park in for the entire marathon. The nominal address for Caltech is 1200 E California Blvd, which will take you to the southern edge of Caltech, and from there you can follow the map below. It’s about a 5 min walk from the parking structure to Dabney Hall.
Something about this 19th-century immigrant dance seems to flip people's worlds upside-down; the beauty of improvising one of the world’s most complex dances with another human being is a beautiful and extraordinary experience that has earned its reputation for being notoriously addictive.
TANGO 101 INTENSIVE WORKSHOP:
In this workshop you will learn the essentials to get started leading, following and connecting to the music and your partner. It's a summary of the first 2 months of the Tango 100 curriculum for anyone who's never danced Tango before, but also for the experienced Tango dancer to go back and clean up their basics.
What an amazing group of people! Thank you everyone!

Hugging releases oxytocin and dopamine, meaning that hugs lower stress levels, blood pressure, and heart rate, and they make us happy. They also make us trust and care for each other more, strengthening our relationships and personal connections. In fact, scientists (who are apparently getting around waaaaay more than I thought) recommend hugging for at least twenty seconds, eight times a day.
