I am going to have a well deserved holiday.
I am taking the MP3 Player (for my Tango Music), my mobile phone (for emergencies only) and leaving my laptop at home. So there will be no posts from me until my return.
There will be no Tango dancing where I am going, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a few dances on my behalf as there is plenty going on over the next couple of weeks.
I look forward to some more Ask Arlene on my return. 🙂

14th June, Sunday – Tango Boot Camp Improvers with Stefano & Alexandra – Brighton
Regular freestyle dancing at milongas is one of the surest ways to improve your tango dancing. We run a number of very friendly, non-intimidating milongas for you to enjoy. These are either as part of our decaDance monthly events or as part of our TangoBootCamp weekends. Tea dances include a fantastic full fat cream tea with sandwiches, scones, and cakes. You do NOT need to have attended the TangoBootCamp coursees to attend any of the milongas.
