Our ‘Etonathon’ event at Christmas time has been running since 2007. To start with it was called ‘Yule Tango’ (geddit?) and included workshops during the day & milongas in the evenings.
Then we decided to ditch the workshops & have afternoon milongas instead, and since then it’s been one of the most popular Tango events. Dancers from all across the UK and beyond can take a break from their relatives, and enjoy a few days of high-quality dancing instead.
About this time of year we start to panic about the arrangements; DJs, Babysitters, & kitchen helpers all have to be arranged. The Hall was booked years ago, but there are still hotel rooms and travel plans that need finalising. To be honest, by the time the event starts it seems that most of our work has been done!
But then there’s 4 days of hosting, dancing, and trouble-shooting to make sure the event runs as well as is humanly possible and everyone has a great time.
Luckily, we have great support from our friends in the Tango community, and it’s a real pleasure to put on an event that’s always so well received. The advance bookings are already starting to come in, and the DJ team is nearly in place, so we can’t wait for Etonathon 2018 to arrive!
