Lone Piñon Dance Party #2

After having a great time in February we all decided we to needed to do it again--we'll be coming back to turn Tortuga into a dancehall on April 21. 

Join us for an evening of the rowdy and elegant New Mexican dances that have enlivened house parties and dancehalls across Northern New Mexico for hundreds of years. Lone Piñon and Friends will provide the violin- and accordion-driven tunes and dance leaders Lucy Salazar and Leticia Gonzales will be there to get us going on the Cuna, Varsoviana, Valse de los Paños, Chotis, Marcha and more. Come help bring the dances to life, subvert colonialism, nourish intergenerational wisdom, drink beer and eat enchiladas! BYOB and food--we'll start with a potluck at 6:30.

Suggested $5-10 donation to help support Tortuga--but no one turned away for lack of funds!
