Tango at the Tavern

When: Wed., March 30 2011

Dancers have been cutting the rug at the Tavern of Richfield's ballroom for the past 125 years. You can join this venerable tradition tonight and every Wednesday as Cleveland dance instructors Greg Messina and Donna Voller take tango to the suburbs. The combo of the circa-1886 Taverne and the 150-year-old dance form makes for an inspiring partnership, says Donna. Plus, the hardwood-floored ballroom is a beauty, top to bottom. "The builder built the ceiling to resemble a ship's hull, and it's magnificent!" Starting at 6:30 p.m., ten bucks gets you a half-hour beginners' lesson, followed by a one-hour "all levels" lesson, followed by dancing from 8 to 11 p.m. (If you already know your stuff, skip the lessons and come dance for only $5.) Meantime, participants can stoke their inner fires with an assortment of drink and appetizer specials from the Taverne's kitchen. The Taverne of Richfield — a registered historic site — is at 3960 Broadview Rd. For more info, call 330-217-4302 or check out — Cicora
