Newsletter 22 January

Hola Tangueros 

Classes started last week - a great turn out for the first class of the year.  Thanks for coming :-)  
Beginners course starts  22 February - SPREAD THE WORD!

Gloria and Graham are coming to town next weekend and we have a few visiting dancers coming to do classes as well - that's exciting!  Please come and support  their workshops and milonga on Anniversary weekend.  See the flyer attached and click onto the blog to see it in bigger form.

It has been lamented to me that there are no more free milongas in Nelson.  I think it would be wonderful to have a once a month free milonga somewhere visible.  Any ideas?  Would anyone like to organise it? I'm totally behind the idea and willing to lend an ear to help you get started and to support it!


Summer Tango is only 46 days away!!

We will have a tangle of dancers coming into Nelson... some are looking for a host dancer/family to have fun with so if you have a spare bed and room in your car - please let me know so I can marry you up.    Remember if you live in town, most of the milongas are walking distance from town so your guests will be able to occupy themselves a little bit too.

Once again those dates to watch our for in 2016 ... 
  • this weekend - Gloria and Graham from Christchurch for workshops and milonga.
  • 15 February Monday class - Alberto and Natalia from Melbourne teaching milonga x 2 classes
  • 20 Feb - 20 March - Quique is here for Summer Tango!  
  • 4-5 March - A-M teaching in Auckland (want to join me?)
  • Summer Tango in Nelson 11-13 March
  • 29-31 April - Matthew Civil and I teaching in Golden Bay
  • 29 June - 5 July - NZ Tango Festival in Wellington 
  • 20 June till ..... Quique returns
  • 16-18 Sept Golden Bay Tango Weekend with A-M
  • October , the wonderful Cecilia Gonzalez returns
So I suggest you plan your holidays accordingly!

See you on the dance floor soon - and remember if you haven't danced for a while the Monday class is prefect to get you back on track!

Tango hugs
