Along with all the wonderful attendees, and fantastic DJs … You've created a real gem, and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you, all.
Thomas
A place, a milonga, an event, that has gained a deserved reputation for good floorcraft a respectful 'moving' ronda and great hosts and this is how a packed salon works. Great dancers, great DJ's, great cakes from Mrs CakeyMcStribs is why I love dancing in Eton and have done for the last seven years.
