Saturday 22th July: Tango, Classes with Matthew and Irina
1:30 Class on the fundamental techniques with Matthew and Irina. Great place both to start and to polish your tango. No partner required.
2:30 Following on from the festival classes with the great Ricardo Viqueira, Matthew and Irina will present a class starting with his style and moves. The class will be suitable for all and for those who did his class, this class will act as revision, reinforecement, and perhaps highlight more possibilities.
3:30 Advanced Class: Having done the great Ricardo Viqueira's Milonga Immersion Course at the NZ Tango Festival, Matthew has much to share of Ricardo's style and moves for milonga. These were very very classic milonga moves and they can form the core of any milonga dance. They will be familiar to many but it is great to see how Ricardo put them together along with a new technique of multiple side steps!
4:30 to 7:00 PM The Saturday Práctica run this week by Matthew and a volunteer!
Next Milonga.....21st July 2017
Friday, July 28 at 8:30 PM - 11:30 PM
Wellington Irish Society
10 Fifeshire Avenue, Wellington, New Zealand 6011
I am looking forward to the return of our monthly milonga to Wellington's tango calendar after being away for quite a while in Montevideo and Buenos Aires.
In Tonight's Tango, the love lost theme of Yuyo Verde will carry on from our previous milonga in the words of a beautiful tango by the man who in his short life is said to have incarnated -better than anybody else- the presence of poetry in tango lyrics.
The playlist will also include the third of what I believe are the four best dance versions of Yuyo Verde.
As usual, there will be homemade wholemeal cakes, coffee, tea and three hours of dancing, all for $10.
With our batteries recharged after the break, we are more than ever looking for ways to improve and vary our milonga, so we will be trying out a slight enhancement to the venue.
We hope you join us and invite your friends.
