Beginners Course in Melville

Tango Class at the Dance Cafe with Bert and Lerato 

Hi Tango Lovers and Friends
Lerato and I are pleased to announce that we will be starting a group Tango class at the Dance Café in Rivonia.
Our class will start on Monday the 5th of September from 8pm to 9pm.

For us Tango is about the connection, the communication and most importantly the comfort experienced between the couple.

And so, in this class we will explore some of the simple - and more complex - movements we perform in our tango…
Using these… we will explore the possibilities of lead and follow with the goal of achieving
•    better connection to each other and the music
•    clearer communication between the couple allowing for the ‘active follower’;
•    and a comfort within ourselves and our partners that allows the Tango to flow through us.

Expect fun and balloons!

The price for the class is R500 per person per month
(That is Monday’s the 5th , 12th , 19th and the 26th   of September.)

To book your place in our class or find more, please contact us on this address
(if you would like to do an EFT, please contact us for banking details.)

*If there is demand for it, we will arrange to book the studio for practica afterwards.

We hope to see you all on the dance floor soon.

Bert and Lerato

Tango at Sea

 Dear Tango at Sea Previous Dancers - 2012

Tango at Sea finished our 19th cruise March 13, 2016.
All necessary data for our next sailing from Savona, Italy on September 10-17, 2016; are shown on our web page; please take a look and let me know if you will be booking this sailing.
Also, please note, that we have changed our format.
We are just cruising to various ports of call and then dance the night away.  This makes for a very relaxing cruise and tango vacation.  No more workshops!!  There are so many talented dancers and several suggested we change our format; hope you like this change.
 We have on board a very talented DJ who plays traditional Argentine Tango throughout Europe.  Francesco “El Actor” from Switzerland was on board with our recent tour.
Our dancers on board expressed how much they enjoyed the relaxing feeling of meeting great dancers from around the world and to dance the night away to great music.
Please feel free to give me your thoughts.
 So, if you are interested, we need to hear from you by June 1, 2016, if at all possible.  There is not much lead time to get the word out.  Anything you can do in your neck of the woods to help spread the word will be so appreciated here.
