Thank you to Alan Wallace and Katerina Stoyanova of La Mariposa in South London for inviting us to teach on Saturday at their lovely milonga. What an amazing floor and a great group of Tangueros!
We want to say a huge thank you to Tracey Acosta and Leo Acosta Tango for organising a wonderful weekend of Tango at the Bournemouth Aires Tango Festival. We had the pleasure to share the dance floor with the legends Nito Garcia and Elba Natalia Sottile, Martin Acosta Tango, Chiara Greco, Karen Salevsky, Luis Alberto Signoretti and of course Leo and Tracey! Thank you also to all the Tangueros who attended the Festival and made it a friendly enjoyable weekend.
We are delighted to be teaching and performing in this year’s Bournemouth Aires Festival, 15-17th February 🙂 There are still a few tickets left for the Saturday evening Ball!
We are back from Buenos Aires and delighted that we have been invited to stay with the communities at Tango Warwick and Tango Cotswolds.
We visit Tango Warwick every Friday of the month, apart from the first Friday and you can find all the details on our classes page.
Our next visit to Tango Cotswolds is on Saturday 9th February.
Just in time before the end of January! Well we had such a busy time before the end of 2018 that I didn’t have time to up-date the news section. We ended the year sharing lots of Tango with our groups across the UK.
We continued to be resident teachers at Tango Warwick, visited Tango Cotswolds as usual every month and enjoyed a Christmas Milonga with them. We played 78’s at the Tango Baires Milonga in Warwick, visited Leicester – teaching and performing and went back to visit Henley twice before the end of the year – phew!
We want to say thank you to all our students and everyone who has invited us into their communities to teach and perform, opening their hearts to our love of the Music. Here’s to another year!
We are looking forward to visiting Henley for the first time on Sunday!
