Public Performance by So Tango students

So proud of our students Marlen and Adrian who recently performed at the GEM Bridal Expo! The event on August 27 was located at the beautiful Sergeant's Mess Hall in Chowder Bay.

In preparation for their March 2014 wedding, Marlen and Adrian, had a series of private lessons with So Tango over January and February, to cover the essential technique and moves of Argentine tango and develop a choreography to their chosen song.

You can read more on this here.

So Tango Student Night-out at Gala Milonga

At So Tango we organise for our students regular visits to milongas around Sydney. On August 8 Sophia, Paul and a group of our students attended a special milonga in Marrickville. The milonga featured a wonderful performance by the world renowned tango dancers from Argentina - Natalia Hills and Alejandro Aquino.

It was a wonderful night out, and a great experience for our students, most of whom had never before been to a milonga!

One of our students was so moved by the experience of his first ever milonga that he wrote the following account in his blog:

      "I feel happy returning home at 2am last night catching the last train from the city. I’ve been to my first milonga, dancing and watching real life tango for almost 5 hours. It was an amazing experience! Half year ago I’ve thought I can not dance at all. It is changing since then with the help of Sophia de Lautour (Alvarez), my tango instructor, who is passionate about tango, very friendly and patient teaching someone who was not born to dance..."

An idyllic scene...people tangoing in the streets, sunset, Naples, Italy! It just shows how tango is truly an international phenomenon and it can be danced (almost) anywhere!

Just like yesterday evening, for example, when Sydney's tango community was dancing in the streets of Surry Hills for the opening of the Fringe Festival.
