 We have a week full of tango activities to suit any budget 
so you can all experience them!

Quique (pronounced key-kay) is a choreographer, dancer and  teacher from Buenos Aires.  You can check out his website here at www.quiquemiller.com.ar He was the choreographer for the famous Piazzolla show and used to teach in La Marshall - one of Bs As well known milongas.  He also runs Casatango a B&B in Bs As. He has just spent two weeks in Sydney teaching and after his stint in Nelson he will head back to Brisbane to complete his teaching tour.

He will be accompanied by Fabian Rodriguez, tango singer. You can listen to some of Fabian's beautiful songs on his myspace page  http://www.myspace.com/fabianrodrigueztango

Fabian and Quique were in Nelson last year and were an absolute hit. We all loved them and there were tears at the airport when they left.  Come and fall in love with them too by learning to dance from Quique or listening to Fabian on the Easter Saturday Night at Bar Berlin.

Private Lessons are $80 an hour with Quique. Call A-M  or email me to book in a private lesson 027 238 0568. Spaces fill fast of course.

Quique Miller
& Fabian Rodriguez
25 March - 1 April 2013



We warmly welcome Quique and Fabian back to Nelson from Buenos Aires for Easter weekend!
For those of you new to Tango here's a little bit about them.
Once more they are on their way to Australia, Quique to teach and Fabian to launch his new very danceable album. 
You will love the way Quique teaches - through “use of energy, physical consciousness, inner centre, dynamics and movement intentionality.”  The former choreographer of the Piazzolla Show in Bs As for many years - he has started teaching abroard and travelling with his partner Fabian, a tango singer.
Quique is an accomplished follower also and is available for private lessons at my place from 26 March - 1 April.  Quique will also be a guest teacher at my usual Monday night class on March 25. 
Fabian was brought up in a family of tango dancers and singers and has recorded albums and sings in tango productions in Buenos Aires.  He is available for private or group singing lessons.
Fabian will be singing at the Saturday Night milonga at Bar Berlin.
Contact Marlo to book a $15 platter for two for the evening on 021 898 125.
