Let's go Tang-o!

Yes it is time to dust off those dance shoes, iron those skirts (on the ironing board not whilst sitting on your bottom watching TV ;-)),  button up those fancy shirts and hit the dance floor.

We have only 6 weeks till Christmas - Can you believe it!

We have 6 more weeks of lessons, a couple of milongas,  a fun Milonga course to complete and a Christmas Party with a guest DJ from Wellington for good measure to help us say goodbye to 2012 and to reminisce about what a fun tango year it has been.


CLASSES
Classes are continuing as usual.  The Sunday Technique Class has just sucessfully completed its mammoth boleo run and we will be focusing on connection and giros for the next few weeks.  Giros are the essential building blocks for the tango so don't miss these fun and challenging classes.

Monday night Improvers class is at 6pm - calling all beginners or dancers who want to boost up their skills for the milongas coming up - this is the class for you.  We are looking at energy in the turns and how to smooth out your dancing so we can "float" around the floor!  If you have not been for a few weeks or months - this is still the class for you.  We take it slowly and methodically and build gradually to your level and beyond.

Monday night Intermediate class starts at 7.15pm.   This class is always fun and high energy.  What a great way to start your week and to connect with your inner tango dancer! We are also looking at giros with the addition of refining the sacada. Forward, side and back saccades are on the menu for the next few weeks.

Wednesday night Milonga Class - at the YMCA in Toi Toi St in Victory starts at 6pm and is running until 28th November. If you know a little bit of milonga and have not come to class yet - head along on Wednesday and join in,  $20 for the class.  Bring a towel and some water - it promises to be thirsty work!  Why not make a night of it and stay for the practica afterwards.
