Saturday 10 December,  No Followers' Technique Class today.

Saturday 10 December, 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM Open class: Matthew is teaching a turning move in the line of dance that was introduced to Wellington by Fabrizio at an NZTF years ago. The move involves some new technique for the leaders so if you are a regular dancer you may find something new here to use in your dance. It can stay as a simple move - or if there are advanced dancers who come Mattthew will show some extensions using the same basic move. Irina will assist. $15.

Saturday 10 December, 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM Tango for Improvers class with Matthew: core basic technique is essential to learn before you can do any advanced steps. Irina will assist. This tango dance class is for people who are in the early stages of learning to dance the argentine tango. The class will teach a few steps, give tips of technique and will be fun. I good grounding in the basics will make everything else so much simpler. Matthew is teaching this class. $15 and free for those from previous class. bring shoes that can slide on a wooden floor.

4:30 to 7:00 PM every Saturday is the Saturday Práctica. This week hosted by Matthew. $8 and $5 for those doing a class on the day.

Sadly the visiting teachers Rika and Jose Luis have had to cancel. Sorry to all who have made arrangement to come to their workshops and booked private lessons.
