35 days to go!

Summer Tango in Nelson
7 - 9 March 2014

35 days to go!

Will you be there?

Now is the time to start booking in for Summer Tango in Nelson.  
3 nights and days of social dancing - in various locations around our beautiful Nelson.

Dance up a storm at The Playhouse, Queens Gardens, Masonic Hall and Fellworth House over the weekend.  Say hi to all your tango friends from other centres who you have not seen since the last festival and be ready to meet some new ones too.  People are starting to book in from the around the country and we already have dancers from the States and Australia heading over!

$75 covers you for entrance to the entire weekend.

Check out the website for all the information and pay me in class if you like or via internet banking.

Why not host a couple of people from out of town and show them some great Nelsonian hospitality?  This is a fantastic way to forge tango relationships and often the favour is reciprocated as well!  Tangueros are pretty low maintenance (being that they are out dancing most of the time!) PLease let me know asap if you can host one or a couple of people.

Thanks and see you on the dance floor soon.

Adelhaide Stock

It is with great sadness that I learnt yesterday that one of our tangueras passed away on Sunday.  Adelhaide was in our beginners class last year and will be remembered for her big smile and positive energy.  The last time most of us saw her was at the Floral Milonga on Friday night - I am sure that all of us who danced with her will be very happy that we had such a lovely time together.

Our thoughts go out to her friends and family and we wish them well in this very sad time.  Joy was with her when she drowned and our support goes out to her and Adelhaide's other special tango friends.

When I return from Auckland on 3 February we will have a little tribute to Adelhaide (between classes) and will dance a tango in her honour.  I will also have a card for you all to sign to pass onto her family from her Tango friends in Nelson.  



Verdict Milonga this Sunday

No class this Sunday but YES the Verdict Milonga is still on!

Please head to Verdict at 5.30 for a few hours to dance and have a nice snack or meal.  Meet up with all the local tangueros.

Verdict Cafe Bar and Restaurant
189 Bridge St, Nelson ( opposite the Courts)

Have a great Sunday everyone.
