Quick update for the weekend

This Sunday's class will look at the colgada from a different move and heaps of time to perfect the ones you already know... I think we are almost there with the colgadas - I am visualising you all all swirling!

Also, straight after class you are all invited to head up to Fairfield House to help Marilyn celebrate her birthday!  Remember to bring whatever you want to eat and drink (and a contribution towards to the venue hire if you like)

I have been working on a great selection of music so I hope you will all come and dance the night away.... from 7pm.

So doors open 4.30 for a 5 - 6.30 class then up to Fairfield.

See you Sunday..... have a great weekend.

Sunday Technique Class - Colgadas

Sunday Class will begin at 5pm - doors open at 4.30 for a warm up.

St John's Hall in Hardy St, opposite Chipmunks

We will continue with the colgadas - so get practicing and let's see if we can come up with some new ones. Leads remember to commit to the followers supporting leg!

Here is a video from Fabian and Carolina- Fabian is one of the forefathers of nuevo technique and a 5* colgada expert! (sorry about the video quality)

Tango this weekend 12 and 13 November

DOUBLE CHURCH LANE TANGO BONANZA
Saturday 12th November

Graham and Alicia (the principal promoters of the Kush and Baby G tango events) are combining to give us a one-night chance at taking over Church Lane with tango on both sides of the street. For this occasion they will play mainly tango Nuevo music at Baby G and mainly more traditional tango music at Kush. This could be quite an occasion. Next we’ll be asking the Council to close the road! (good idea Gwenny!)

Baby G starts at 6.30pm, Kush is from 7-10pm. Baby G will evolve into their regular Latin Fiesta night with salsa continuing until late.

There will be no Baby G Tango on Friday night.

Hope to see you on Saturday night!

Sunday Technique Class and shawls

Sunday Technique Class will begin at 5pm as usual this Sunday with the doors opening at 3.30 so the Mujeres De Tango can come and have a look at the beautiful and elegant shawls that I have here form Doha, Qatar!

Come along and check out the shawls - the prices range from $40 for the richly coloured, some sparkly, some more understated shawls to $90 for the beautiful hand sewn, peacock beaded, extravaganza of a shawl!

The class this week will focus on a new and pretty colgada that you can swish into your repertoire.

Look forward to seeing you all there.

Check out the earlier post this week about the Xmas Party.

Have a great weekend and see you Sunday

Michelle and Murat... I do love the way they don't rush into the beginning of their performance ;-)

MUJERES DE TANGO - SPECIAL INVITE


This a special invite to the "Mujeres de Tango" (The women of tango)

You are all invited to the St John’s Hall before class on this Sunday to a special viewing of the most beautiful shawls from Doha, Qatar.

I have 30 shawls, all of them unique.  Perfect for that tango outfit for the festivals, for all those Christmas events we have coming up and for Christmas presents.  All elegant and definitely an addition to any summer or winter outfit.  The Nelson tangueras will be making a statement in these shawls!

Hope to see you Sunday from 3.30pm at St John’s Hall.
