I had the delight of participating in a small tango weekend in a lovely German town about 2 hours from Berlin called Erfurt a weekend or so ago. There were about 100 attendees. The dancing started in the day and went into the evening for 3 days! This happens often here in Europe but this was my first one!
I met one of the DJ’s, Julian, in 2008 in Houston and we hadn’t seen each other since. Amazing how tango can bring together people after so much time.
I think I have mentioned before how hot these milongas get. Well, it was another hot milonga but I took a picture when most of us were still fresh!
Meeting a handful of people living in different parts of Germany including some Argentines who are living in Munich is part of the fun!
I am excited to report that I will be teaching 2 classes (finally) in Berlin. One will be a part of the pre-milonga Practica class at the El Ocaso Milonga on Wednesday, July 15th at 7pm.
The next one will be an Alignment For Dancers class on Sunday July 19th at 12:00pm at Tango Berlin Studio.
I am looking forward to both of these events as most of my teaching up until now has been private lessons. So this will be a nice change.
I am still finding that I desperately need to immerse myself into a German Language class and with all the craziness of my living situation I have had little time and energy to commit to a course. In a nutshell, EVERYONE is looking for a place to stay/live in Berlin. Unbelievable!
The heat and humidity have arrived in Berlin and now most Berliners are heading to nearby lakes to cool off and get some sun(burn)!
That’s the update for now!
Reminders that I’ll be teaching in Scottsdale, AZ in October and in Albuquerque, NM. Let me know if you’d like me to come to your city!
