October is unfolding with many tango activities keeping us busy. Kasha and Grant come back for their final instalment next week and Labour weekend David Backler arrives from Melbourne to perform and hold some great classes. Do you remember John and Felicity who taught here a few years ago? They will also be performing at the Playhouse and Matthew and I will be teaching a fun free beginners class. Then after the performance we will dance away the evening with an eclectic mix of nuevo and trad tangos by DJAM! It's going to be fun!
See you the dance floor tangueros :-)

I am really excited to be going to Holland in a months time and I am so lucky that I have some great students/friends to open the practica doors for me and make you feel welcome. Nicki and Bill will be your hosts ! It could also be a great time to introduce some of your friends to tango without the teacher being around :-)
In the meantime we have a month of classes to be had with Kasha and Grant coming back for their final instalment and David Backler coming from Melbourne + our regular Sunday and Monday classes - so let's go hard for the month of October!
