Happy New Year!

I can’t believe 2010 is just about over.  It has been a fantastic year for me. I’ve met some fantastic people and have taught some amazing people tango this year.  My students give me a tremendous amount of joy  – thank you!

I look forward to 2011 in so many ways and so should you!

1) 3 TANGO TOURS TO CHOOSE FROM!
We will be offering 3 tours this coming year for tango lovers.  The Mendoza – Vino y Tango tour: 5 days in Mendoza Argentina exploring wine country.  The 10-day Cultural Immersion Tour – 10 days in Buenos Aires and the 8-day Tango Tour de Lujo. Each with a different pocketbook and objective in mind.

2) BORGIALLI TANGO SHOES ON THE ROAD!
Rommel Oramas and I will be taking the Soy Porteno practice sneakers on the road this year.  We will be visiting several festivals across the country and we are looking forward to bringing some comfort to your feet!  We will also be unveiling the Borgialli Tango Shoe website with shopping and logo.  VERY EXCITING!

3) MORE CLASSES!
Besides my classes at Scottsdale Community College and ASU this semester, I will be teaching my FUNDAMENTALS CLASSES in January.  ALSO, Fridays January 21, 28 and February 4th Rommel Oramas and I will be teaching ADVANCED CONNECTIONS WORKSHOPS at the Art of Dance in Scottsdale.
I will also be teaching in Jerome, Arizona in February!

4) ASU TANGO FESTIVAL APRIL 1, 2, 3
I am really excited for this festival. Not just because it is on my home turf! or is being hosted by my students or because I will be teaching at it! but MOST IMPORTANTLY the selection of teachers are some of the best teachers in the US (Canada)!  This will truly be a learning and sharing weekend.  Please join us…  Housing hosts and group rates available.

ASU Guerilla Milonga in Elevator!
ASU Tango Club is hosting their semester milonga on Saturday December 4th in the ASU Memorial Union Ballroom from 8pm – 12am.  $10.  They are calling it the Black and White Milonga.  Tango Club is celebrating their 10th Anniversary as well.
It’s amazing to think that I was taking tango at ASU and then shortly after I left in 2000 Tango Club began to take formation.  I knew the originators of the first tango clubs as they had taken class with me!  I was fortunate to have Eric Parks and Ali Wachutka as students in 2006 who started the Tango Club format as it stands now. 

Next weekend we have combined the Practica del Desierto with the Practica del Diablo.  ASU will be the hosts for this practica on Saturday December 11th 8pm – 12am at Art of Dance Studio in Scottsdale.  This practica will be run by ASU students. Acacia Crouch will be DJ.  Marie Righetti will be teaching the class prior to the practica.  As an added attraction the ASU Tango 2 students will give you the option to “DANCE WITH A DEVIL”.  Followers:  buy a tanda or 2 with a lovely Tango 2 leader of your choice. 

Remember you can still practice your tango on Tuesday nights at Art of Dance.

SOON TO COME:
JANUARY CLASSES:  FUNDAMENTALS AND INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED CONCEPTS

CULTURAL IMMERSION TOUR TO BUENOS AIRES DATES!
