Tango Y Nada Mas! 27th July 2013

We went along to Tango Y Nada Mas last night, if you haven't seen it, hurry along to Chatswood Concourse today or tonight. Loved this venue, and how lucky are we to have such talented dancers and musicians, visiting our country? For another glimpse of their performances as well as some backstage scenes here is a clip I discovered below...

  • What is the Tango?

    One of my favourite questions when meeting new tango dancers is to find out how they started tango... so while we are on the topic - how did you start Tango - let me know!

    Dancing on a variety of Floors

    I just read an interesting article via a link on facebook - Dancing on Bad Floors (Without Killing Yourself, Your Knees, or Anyone Else).

    A few years ago a friend of ours shared with us, how to use duct tape on the base of shoes to convert ordinary shoes temporarily into dance shoes - which we have used at times - with a degree of success. It's very helpful if you are dancing on surfaces where you don't want to destroy your expensive dance shoes we've found. However, duct tape is just one solution to the dilemma, and this article has so many ideas that I had never heard about before.

    I have seen a pair of shoes converted with plastic milk cartons! Who'd have thought you could do that? Not me that's for sure, but they work - I'll see if I can convince this person to share his skills with a 'how to' on this blog sometime.

    Analia Carreño y Luis Ramirez

    We attended A Little Buenos Aires 13th Anniversary at The Polish Club in Ashfield last night and were treated to a performance by Analia y Luis. It was stunning - what a couple! And their daughter is just as cute as a button, she was a delight helping end the show with her little bow with her beautiful parents! This video is from a performance at Salon Canning, I'm hoping that a copy of their performance last night is listed on youtube soon, they are so beautiful to watch. We did one of their workshops yesterday and are only regretting not being able to get away to do more of their classes. If you get a chance to see their performances or to attend their classes - grab it.
