Jonathan y Olivia, seasoned Encuentro Organizers and Hosts, will be guest hosting and organizing the Pioneer Encuentro in collaboration with local Salt Lake City residents, Mark and Lorraine Christensen -- at the beautifully restored historic architectural beauty "The Clubhouse on South Temple".

 

The Clubhouse, located at 850 E South Temple, Salt Lake City, Utah, is a newly remodeled 100 year old+ building that was once home to the Ladies Literary Club, where Argentine tango was danced on the hardwood floor of the grand ballroom in the early 20th Century. The Clubhouse also features a stage, balcony, mezzanine, foyer, beautiful lighting, air conditioning, and free onsite and nearby parking. 

 

The Pioneer Encuentro, a private invitational traditional Encuentro, featuring an equal balance between leaders and followers consisting of 130 milonguero style tango dancers, predominantly from the US and Canada.

 

We look forward to meeting you at our Friday evening Meet & Greet with appetizers, wine and beverages followed by a Friday evening opening milonga.
