We had a wonderful night on 27th - lovely happy crowd and a really enjoyable vibe. The buffet was a big success too - only downer was the huge thunderstorm that hit Sydney about 6.30 giving everything a good wash, and possibly keeping a few tangueras/os home. And my software crisis! but I have solved that. I think too much Christmas cheer got to me, so I spent the 28th sorting out the software - it won't happen again.
The Gladesville RSL is a great venue for milongas and the manager and staff bend over backwards to be helpful - even to the point of providing a plate of special food for one of our dancers.
So where next... well this week we will dance at Rose Bay RSL to the very danceable music of DJ Pedro from Patio de Tango. On Saturday Pedro will once again provide the music for the Saturday Patio de Tango milonga - at a new venue, the Swingtime Dance Studio, 108 Parramatta Road, Camperdown - starting at the new time of 9pm and going till 2am! For more info email Sophia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many of Sydney's milongas start again next week including the casual Sunday milonga at the Artarmon Freeway Hotel, from 4 till 8pm. It's free this week (4th January) and organised by A Little Buenos Aires (more details email@example.com) ...
too many other events to list here, check the calendars on TangoAustralia for details - and for info on milongas in other states.
Looking forward to another great year of tango in Australia, more visiting teachers, festivals and events - happy tangoing to everyone. Hope to meet you on the dance floor in 2009.
