Vals classes/Private classes/ September milonga/Tango Spa/


For the last two weeks of August Luis & Elizabeth will concentrate on tango Vals for the second and 3rd classes at St Mary's. The classes will be followed as usual by a practica/social dancing with Juan de Scarfo as DJ, and with some squash, wine, and cake to give a very pleasant feeling of energy & wellbeing (and maybe sore feet). Do come if you can! Usual details below.


Luis & Elizabeth give private and semi-private classes on some Saturday mornings. Please contact them directly to arrange them. This could be done via


ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS: a new cohort will start at the 6.30 class on Friday 14th September. Please tell ---anybody relevant. Poster attached.


Tango Spa v7 workshop slots are disappearing fast. There are spaces for two leaders at all of them, (but a waiting list for W1), and for more for some, and a few spaces for couples. For followers the waiting lists are long for all except Workshop 1 (which probably boasts the most experienced dancers at the moment). But the dance packages, for 20 hours of dancing, with very good discounts, and which will not be available at the door, are on sale. See 


Don't forget to put the September & October milongas in your diaries!
