Milongas and Tedx and Fun – oh my!

It has been a very very busy few weeks and many of you know. Thanks to everyone who came Farewell Milonga 1to Rommel’s Farewell Milonga. What an amazing milonga event!

There were more than 80 people in attendance and so much food!!!! Thanks to Marisa and her helpers who did the lighting which made the space more “milonga-ish”, and Mark Napier for keeping us dancing and generously providing us with a salsa set and a “birthday style farewell dance” forFarewell Dance Rommel.

Rommel has been a huge part of my life for almost 8 years and when he moved to Phoenix about 5 years ago he began to find his tango. He is one of the most generous dancers I have ever met. A few of the community who ritually attended his weekly PRACTICaNDo basically learned how to dance thanks to him. Ladies, I know he will be missed and he is scheduled to return in March an even better dancer!!!

Once again thanks to the community for their attendance at the milonga, for those who traveled from Tucson and Sedona/Cottonwood to dance with us and for all of your generous Farewell Milonga 2support in the love of tango.

And from one event to the other, I participated in TedX on Sunday afternoon and in spite of a few technical glitches, and my nervousness I think it went well. Hopefully there will be a video out soon.

I am working on my calendar for the new year and will have classes and workshops for all levels starting in January – any special requests please send me an email.


PRACTICanDo Tuesday night with a Tango Warm -Up Drills starting at 7:00pm. Don’t miss a chance to practice your tango… See you at SNAP.
