Damian Thompson is a thorough and clear teacher who's technique and versatility is in demand all over the world. I am sure you will both benefit and enjoy his classes.  

Contact: Ange 0427 845 297

Damian Thompson is at present based in Sydney.   He began dancing many years ago and was a professional ballroom teacher and salsa teacher before becoming entangled in the web of tango.  For the past 11 years, he has focused exclusively on Argentine tango and has taught and performed
in many places around the world.

In the past 4 years, he has taught in Buenos Aires and in Europe, including Italy, Germany, Poland, Holland and Latvia. Over the past couple of years Damian toured and taught in the USA and Canada and performed with some of their most famous dancers.  New York was the highlight, with him being asked to perform at the most popular milongas and also on New Yearʼs Eve. Some of those performances are available on YouTube.

Damian has also been invited to perform for The Royal Australian Ballet Company in Melbourne.  Recently, he has of course, been teaching in his own country, Australia - and whilst on tour has performed in every city and community in Australia with a recent highlight at the Darwin Festival to Gurrumul's award winning music (with permission).

His style is based on years of learning from many different maestros and tango styles. His teaching is based up on an on-axis style and using the principles of technique to achieve a symbiotic relationship with both the music and his partner.

Prior to focusing on tango, Damian taught martial arts for over 20 years and that has enabled him to understand the body mechanics and reasons why we do things in tango that sometimes seem at first  difficult.

Many describe him as a very playful, fun teacher.  Damian teaches and conveys the basic and essential concepts of the most complex moves in a systematic, logical fashion. He is a collaborator in the teaching and development of tango, a provocateur who inspires passion in the art of dancing tango.

Casa del Milagros - House of Miracles

'Casa de milagros (“House of miracles”) is based in an eighteenth-century hacienda located in lamay, peru within the sacred valley of the Incas. Snow-capped peaks and organic gardens and flowers surround us.'

If you haven't heard of Casa del Milagros yet, here's a snippet from their site...

The Beginning In 1995 Mama Kia visited Cusco, Peru and was moved by the plight of abandoned and orphaned children.   She spent several months feeding them in parks but realized that they needed much more than nutrition, they needed education, medical treatment, the feeling of family and most of all…love.
Three years later, after the death of her grandson Chandler Sky Patton, Kia along with her daughter Marie Patton and son-in-law Allen created the Chandler Sky Foundation – In Loving Memory of Chandler Sky.
“After Chandler’s passing we had so much love to give that we decided to put it into other children who were not fortunate enough to have parents to love them.”
Chandler Sky Foundation was founded with the help of Oasis Preserve International and from many others who have given financially, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Our Mission The purpose of Casa De Milagros is to nourish the mind, body and spirit of orphaned children and instill in them a sense of self-esteem and self-worth.
Our orphanage is a unique healing home where we encourage growth by providing the children with proper health, a good education, art, and recreational and social activities. At Casa de Milagros the children and adults live as a single family, in an atmosphere filled with love and creativity. Living within a cooperative environment all of our children learn how to manage interpersonal relationships, respect each other, and use non-offensive verbal communication. We are a home where children can be children.

Perhaps if you know of someone going to Peru on their travels to South America could I ask you to stop by with some goodies...

Hi Tangueros BOOK NOW FOR MILONGA WORKSHOP! Wednesday 6th July 7.30pm - 10pm. I have heard some good leaders say they sit out a milonga tanda well . . . NO MORE MILONGA IS THE MOST FUN!

Milonga uses the same basic elements as Tango and requires a greater relaxation of legs and body. Movement is normally faster. It is rather a kind of rhythmic walking without complicated figures, with a much more "rustic" style than Tango.There are different styles of Milonga: "Milonga Lisa" (Simple Milonga), in which the dancer steps on every beat of the music; and "Milonga con Traspié," in which the dancer uses Traspiés or contrapasos (changes of weight from one foot to the other and back again in double time or three steps in two beats) to interpret the music. Thus, dynamics may be danced without having to run fast or without the use of much space."

Special PRACTICA from 7pm - late at Avalon RSL Thursday 30th June. Please use this opportunity to put your tango into practice and DANCE! Only $10

    "And to begin with, having people apart - it's a mistake. It's a big mistake and teachers don't realize it yet, but what you have to teach people is to walk with another person in front, not to walk by themselves - they already know that. I don't see why they have to learn something by themselves. It's like, you want to learn to play piano and I give you a trumpet. It doesn't help you." Fabian Salas

    "A good tango dancer is someone who has rhythm and who has a good musical ear. He also has respect for the woman; to know what to do at the right time with the right partner. He adapts himself to the woman. He makes her feel that she is the best dancer. He dances for her."
