Exiles and Encounters : behind the stories of tango weaves together heartfelt and humorous songs, deftly executed instrumental pieces and colourful storytelling from the intriguing world of Argentine Tango. Part of its history is a result of the numerous European migrants and refugees that flooded Buenos Aires at the turn of the 20th century and between the wars. Stories of love lost and found, of nostalgia and new beginnings. Much later on, the dictatorship in the 70’s pushed many Argentines into the reality of exile, bringing them back to Europe. And many of them found a way to make a living through tango, as performers or dancers…

No Time to Tango

There have been many life changes for me over the last few years.  The biggest being that I moved from London where I could dance Tango every night of the week, to a place of no Tango.  Zip!  Fortunately, I still have the music.  It took some time to get used to, but slowly, other things replaced the Tango void.  This is interesting in itself as Tango used to fill a void.

I haven’t danced at a milonga in over a year.  Even so, I have still kept up the blog so that others may find out where to dance.

That time has come to an end.  Something had to give and keeping up this blog is one of them.  I need time to do other things.

So, this is the last post you will see on this blog and the calendar will be removed.  You can still find out about venues and read about my Tango journey.

Adios and Happy Dancing!

Arlene
