Hi I’m Diego; I have a deep passion for Argentine Tango. I’m from Buenos Aires, Argentina; I have been exposed to tango music and tango dance all my life, I have been actively dancing for 9 years. I keep taking lessons any time I can (many times a year). Every year, I visit Argentina to take more intense lessons and to dance socially at the milongas
Some friends are coming to Nelson for the long weekend from Calgary and we would like to share our tango. There's going to be an open house Tango clinic (or tango a la carte) in Nelson from 3:30-5:30 pm and if you're curious, or would like to learn and enhance some of your Tango knowledge, you are invited to come and join us. This is a FREE event but donations are welcome to cover the cost of the space. Interested?
Please register by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Provide basic contact information: Name and phone# to contact you.
Indicate if you have any tango experience, have ever danced and taken Argentine Tango lessons before? Or are you a total beginner eager to explore this beautiful and very expressive dance?
This will help us to separate the group and topics if needed, based on level, interest shown by the group, and on how many people get registered. Therefore, pre-registration is strongly recommended.
Depending on all this, we might add a second 2 hours session.
