Ladies Night with Meli at Esquina Tango is excited to honor the legendary Janet Jackson (Miss Jackson if you’re nasty!)
We will be dancing to “If” circa 1993….get out those chokers and bell sleeves!
This class is great for all levels of dance! We offer a place for you to have fun, relax, learn some new moves, show off your moves and celebrate being a bad-ass! Guys, you are always welcome to join!
We will have some Jackson 5 punch for you to sip on (while supplies last). Bubbles and white wine are the base of the drink….please feel free to BYOB if you want a different bevy!
