Waterford Tango’s own Jim McManus dance in World Tango Championships in Argentina. At the age of 99! The papers are going mad about him in Buenos Aires.

It starts with DJ Ducky Day at 1900 this Sunday in the Cork County Cricket Club in Richard Beamish Grounds on Mardyke Walk. It lasts until the DJ calls it quits. The smile on this guy’s face means it might go on a bit longer 😉
Milonga is this Sunday but at a later time due to our Urban October event where we offer a free class to beginners! The class starts at 1900 in the Cork County Cricket Club in Richard Beamish Grounds on Mardyke Walk. The milonga starts at 2000 hours in the same place.
