Juana Novau

October 22, 1932 —

Juanita is the first milonguera I ever met in Buenos Aires.  When her grandson Marcelo was about 12 years old, she got him started learning tango during his summer vacation from school.  He was my favorite dance partner every Saturday at Tango nada mas in Chicago.

Juanita is always as happy and cheerful as she is in this photo.  She is celebrating her birthday in Miami with her son and his family.
