CATS September  Milonga & Tango Shoe Swap/Sale! SaturdaySeptember 1, 2018 

8:00 PM - 12:00 AM

Bring Tango Shoes you want to sell or donate:   

Shoe prep

Shoe Swap/Sale

Bring the gorgeous shoes you don’t wear and swap or sell them for gorgeous shoes that other people don’t wear. Time to clear space in your closet for other shoes you can’t live without. 

To prepare and label the shoes you want to swap or sell:

Put each pair of shoes into a zip lock plastic bag.

•Use masking tape under the arch on the sole of each shoe listing your name, the shoe size, and the price if you want to sell them, or the word “donate” if you just want to give them away. (Keep the price reasonable and low if you really want to let the shoes go.)

• In the plastic bag include an envelope listing your name, address, e-mail address and phone number (so we can return shoes or money to you.

 $20, $10 students with ID

($25, $15 students when there is a performance or live music.)

(Note: Because our rent has recently increased, we now need to charge $20 for our milongas, and $25 when there is a performance or Live Music. Thanks for understanding. We never want $ to be a reason for people not to join us. Please speak to me if this is a problem.)

Letter to our Tango community from CATS:

CATS would like to thank our community for your patience and support in light of the difficulties we have experienced with the stickiness of the floor at our milongas for the past few months because of the rosin from the ballet dancers. Our landlord has been working with us to research and find solutions to return the floor to its previous smooth surface.  

The New Haven Ballet Company also uses the space and needs to use rosin on the floor. The landlord has presented ideas to try to suit each of our different needs, but it will take time to accomplish, and he needs to work around the time when the ballet company will be on a break so that he will have access to the floor when not in use in order to make the changes. 

Please bear with us while we sort this out. In the meantime we will continue to make free stockings available to put over your shoes and also offer the Dance Socks for $5 that I ordered from Amazon that look nicer and work quite well. (The $5 covers the price I paid for them.)

We have loved working in this beautiful space and dancing with all of you. We look forward to many more Tangos in the future. Thanks you again for your patience and support.
