NZ TANGO FESTIVAL
The NZ Tango Festival is only 6 weeks away and I am busy organising the performances, the DJs, the taxi dancing team (we have leaders coming from Italy and Australia to help out), the advertising and marketing... lots of fun things! So the excitement is mounting and the days are passing by very quickly.
Quite a few Nelson dancers are coming to the festival this year.....some are doing Immersion courses both before and after the festival and some are just coming for the festival to participate in 6 classes and to soak in atmosphere and the fabulous international performances at the evening milongas, to hang out at lunchtime in the Atrium and shoot the tango breeze. Would you like to join us?
Check out the website and have a look at what's on offer.. ask Juliette or me any questions about classes or how it all works etc.. we can talk about it for hours (and we do!!)
The best little Tango festival in the world
CLOSER TO HOME!
We have tango class this Sunday at 5pm - doors open at 4.30 for a wee practice.
This week we will be looking at our favourite little milonguero giro with a twist!
Have a think about whether you would like the Sunday Technique Class to start at the earlier time of 4pm, finishing at 5.30pm through the winter... it is getting chilly these nights and I wonder if it is a good idea to be home closer to 5.30pm than 7pm?! Let me know what you think.. but for this week we start at the normal time of 5pm.
CHRISTCHURCH 11-13 MAY
Vuelvo Al Sur
Here's a video of Sebastian performing in Brazil last year. Some of us are going down to Christchurch to do his workshops and attend all the lovely milongas Christchurch has organised... join us? The is rumour that a Christchurch dancer may be able to put up a couple of people.... so if you are keen to go contact Juliette on firstname.lastname@example.org
See you soon tangueros!
