Located in N.D.G., they are the only Argentine tango school in the city’s west end. Over the years they have built a reputation for having a warm and friendly atmosphere as well as a great musical selection at their milongas, and an excellent team of instructors. MonTango’s Philosophy: Argentine tango is our passion and our goal is to share that passion. Anyone can learn to dance tango, and tango is for everyone: singles, couples, young and old. If you can walk, you can dance. Walking is the basis of Argentine tango, and a walk around the dance floor should feel as easy and pleasurable as a stroll in the park. www.montango.ca __________________________________________________________________ Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Animator, director, and writer JOYCE BORENSTEIN: “A career in Film” An award-winning filmmaker, Joyce shows slides and film excerpts from some of her extraordinary works. from 1:30 to 2:30pm at the Unitarian Church of Montreal, 5035 de Maisonneuve West Nonmembers $10.

Founded in 1894 and incorporated in 1968, the Women’s Art Society of Montreal has played an important role in fostering awareness and understanding of the arts among the general public of the city. As one of the earliest organizations for women artists, the Women’s Art Society of Montreal helped pave the way for the integration of women into the art world. Nowadays, the Women’s Art Society is more social and educational than professional in nature since various opportunities and avenues of support are open to female artists. Related
