Newsletter 22 January
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
