MILONGA WORKSHOP VIDEO NOTES   2 comments

The milonga workshop we gave on February 8 at the Shalimar Room was a lot of fun, at least for us and for most of those attending. We have put together a summary video clip to refresh memories and to give each participant that important ingredient that is missing in our quest for good dancing, the awareness of the way others see us, and the way we look when we watch ourselves from outside.

No amount of lectures, explanations and even repetitions can do the job of self examination and self awareness of our real projection on the dance floor as seen from an impartial point of view. Yours, privately, and with a strong dose of humility to accept reality and make a concerted effort to improve.

All comments, suggestions and opinions are warmly welcome.

TANGO NIGHT AT LE PHARE IS OFF TO A GREAT START   Leave a comment

You beautiful people are the best to party with!

The fine autumn weather is here and it just gets everyone in mood to go out again.

After a long wait of nearly three years, the posh bar formerly known as Loft 523 is up and running again.

As you all know we held weekly classes and a milonga there for three years every Tuesday before Katrina. Now Le Phare has invited us back albeit on Wednesdays to resume weekly Tango Nights! The place is much the same, only better!

The cool upscale decor and comfy sofas are still there. The great sound system is there. The wood floors are there, with ample space for dancing. Video screens have been added, so we can show tango movies, and excerpts of dancers in Buenos Aires.

We have a super cute and friendly bartender named Jonathan, who was with us before, and a new manager Bruce (also very cute). Both of them are making us feel welcome, and doing all they can to make Wednesday Tango Nights a long lasting and successful fixture at Le Phare. But the most important element is you!

You made Tuesdays at Loft 523 the most popular milonga in New Orleans, and judging by the energy and enthusiasm last night, you are going to make tango at Le Phare fun and happening once again!

You know we play all tango all the time, so you can dance from 9 until midnight non stop. The group classes are always fun and informative, so come early and join in.
