Luis & Elizabeth extension!/ Raquel's Ladies

 There was a popping of corks and very good cheer at last Fridays practica to celebrate Luis & Elizabeth's agreement to extend their residency with us until Christmas. They have been superb. Their approach to teaching tango by emphasizing the overriding importance of the music and the fact that tango is most likely danced in fairly crowded conditions,  has brought people to their classes from far afield. We are very pleased to have them. The shellac 78's they brought last week were also a delight to listen and dance to.


It is essentially a month to the return of Raquel Greenberg's much appreciated "Ladies Techniques & Styling" Seminar. It hasn't been seriously advertised yet in order  to give the opportunity for local/ regulars  to get tickets, but there are still tickets left and external advertising will start by the end of this week. Details are in the attached poster.


Congratulations to Corina Piatti!  She is a finalist for "Vocalist of the Year" in the 2018 Lukas awards. See especially if you want to vote.
