Coronavirus and Tango Elegante classes
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, a family bereavement, and the indeterminate nature of when ‘lock down’ may end, we are pushing our Spring Season back to ‘start’ at the end of May. I am not too hopeful that it will be possible to start then, so I will re-evaluate the situation mid-May and decide whether the Spring Season should be abandoned for a long Summer Season.
For now you can continue to review the proposed future schedule by looking at our events page.
In the meantime, with very little opportunity to dance at class or milonga venues, we can at least all improve our musicality by listening to lots more tango, vals, and milonga tunes.
You may be aware that I am writing a series of articles (with examples) on the structure of tango music and possible interpretation. I published one recently, have another coming out soon, and have a few more ideas to round off the series, so you may wish to study them while waiting for the tango world to start turning again.
All tango articles can be found by following the menu link above.
If you have the space and a decent floor, you may also want to avail yourself of the many online classes and dance ‘events’ which are popping up on the web. It’s not quite the same as ‘in person’, but good good enough to keep your tango going to some level or another. The tango community has to try stick together as much as possible until this crisis is over so a big thanks to all those teachers who have managed to move their activities online to keep the community alive.
This is definitely one situation where ‘if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it’, so try practise as much as you can, even if solo.
Please follow the Government advice and stay safe.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
