We’re still here, waiting… (unlike some?)

By | News, Uncategorized

Well hello again! I’m breaking the extended radio silence, after months of stagnation.

It still looks like it’s going to be a few more months  before we can be back dancing again; current estimates suggest late June, but frankly we have our doubts. As we speak, Septonathon 2021 still looks far from certain.

You know what they say? About absence making the heart grow fonder? Well, it really is true when it comes to our Tango world. It’s hard to express how much we’ve been missing seeing everyone and having fun evenings with friends. Just getting to see everyone, to chat, joke, and dance the night away.

One thing’s for sure; we will never take the personal contact at Milongas and lessons for granted again.

So we’re just waiting, as patiently as we can, for summer to come, for the vaccinations programme to carry on, and for the gradual easing of the lockdown to get to the point when we can dance in close embrace safely.

In the meantime, word reaches us from time to time about talk of private ‘at home’ milongas that might have been happening during the lockdown. We really hope that it’s just rumours and nothing else; I mean, who would be so selfish and anti-social?

We WILL be back, just as soon as possible.

on your marks….

This week’s small relaxation of the rules about work and exercise came as a welcome sign that things might start to get started again in a small way in the Tango world in the next month or two. Yes, yes, it depends on how the notorious ‘R’ number changes, and the whims of government, but you never know…, do you?

We expect that the first possibility for us will be for private lessons to be able to start again.  We’ll depend on the availability of our venues for lessons, but we’re lucky that the venue we use in Bramley has its own entrance and kitchen, and it’s not much used apart from us, so it’s a pretty good option for us to use for private lessons. We’re contacting our regular private lesson students this week to see who will be interested.

And just get in touch if you think that a private lesson or two will be a great way to get dancing again and refresh your memory after all these weeks!

No doubt there won’t be any possibility of Milongas any time soon, though. They must be the worst possible type of event for spreading viruses, mustn’t they; lots of people, closed spaces, and extremely close personal contact. Argentine Tango is the perfect storm for infections to spread.

But anyway, let’s be grateful that things might be heading in the right direction at long last!!
