August is traditionally a quiet month for Tango. Many lessons pause for the summer, and milongas are often shut for a few weeks too. For several years now we’ve taken a break for the month, and ironically found ourselves with nowhere to go and dance, because most other Tango organisers were doing the same thing!
But this year it’s different; now that our regular group lesson have stopped, we’ve had more time on our hands, and the pace of life has calmed down.
So, what have we been doing? Well, strangely, it’s been a pretty busy time, planning and organising for the future events.
Our Monthly milongas have a new home, so there’s a load of preparation needed to design the layout and decoration of the new venue, and get everything ready.
And now that we’ve got St Bernards Convent booked for 4 day events at Christmas and Easter there’s been a flurry of emails to DJs as we try to put together teams for both the events.
So please don’t ask if we’ve had a nice restful summer!
