Milonga Update for the incoming weeks

Here's the latest from Gwenny - I cannot put it any more succinctly myself - so thanks for that Gwenny!
My next post will have a little special something for our new beginners and a Tango Libre update ... so check that out soon.

The monthly milonga at Verdict is coming up again this Sunday 27th May starting at 5.30pm and ending about 8.30pm.    Please note that the last Sunday in June is in the middle of the New Zealand Tango Festival in Wellington so we won’t hold the Verdict milonga that month.   Next one after that in late July.   Typically this Milonga is the last Sunday in the month.

Remember that my Sunday Technique Class starts at 4pm on the last Sunday of the month so we can all head along to the Verdict milonga at 5.30pm.  Remember to buy a meal or drink in support of the venue.

Here are some winter hours updates for Bar Berlin and Tango@KUSH.

Café del Tango @KUSH
During the winter this will now be held fortnightly from Saturday 19 May through to the end of September.
So the dates when it will be held are:
·         May 19
·         June 2, 16 & 30
·         July 14 & 28
·         Aug 11 & 25
·         Sept 8 & 22

Bar Berlin
There will be no Bar Berlin on 1st June because the venue has a prior commitment.   Alicia is considering whether to move from the current 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month to alternating with the new winter hours for Kush (above).    Alicia will text folk when it’s on in any case, or you can look on the local tango website for updates.    Go to  for this and plenty of other tango news.

NZ Tango Festival – Wellington 19-26th June
5 weeks to go and counting..... support the Festival in Wellington which is bringing fabulous teachers to New Zealand.   You can attend different parts of the event if you can’t get to the whole thing.  Take a look at the website at:   If you are thinking about it but unsure, dozens of Nelsonians have been to the Festival over the years, so don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions and we can put you in touch with someone to chat with.

Sebastián Arrúa
Sebastian has been and gone and ‘thank you’ to you, James Upton, for giving Sebastian the use of your flat while you were away.  That was really nice for him and also helpful to the organisers.  Several Nelson folks went down last weekend to Christchurch for a wonderful milonga and more workshops with Sebastian.  The Nelson visit (and Sebastian’s tour of workshops in Auckland, ChCh, Wgtn, and Dunedin) was organised by Juliette and she was able to join with two other groups to fund Sebastian’s ticket to NZ using some of the Nelson tango funds.   This made the visit possible and the workshops have allowed the account to be topped back up while we await another exciting teacher to visit Nelson.   Thank you everybody for your support.  Sebastian had a great visit here.

What’s on in Christchurch and Wellington
If you would like to be on an emailing list for what’s on in Christchurch or Wellington, they send out regular updates.  Write to (for Wgtn news) and ChCh news).

That's all folks for this post!
