Thanks to those who came to Milonga Africana on Friday. We had a great time. Once again, I was impressed to see some new people. Thank you to our Cape Town tangueros for being so open and welcoming. I was also happy to see so many people at the premilonga lesson. At these lessons we focus on fundamental technique for the Level 2s (post-beginners). We worked on an interesting sacada which I saw was rapidly incorporated into the dancing!
It seems like Rhapsodys has closed indefinately so I am looking for another venue for the milonga on alternative Tuesdays. In the meantime, we will be continuing with tango at Friedas on Bree every second Tuesday. Friedas has a uniquely cosy atmosphere with a bohemian flair reminiscent of the famous La Catedral in Buenos Aires. Practising is really the only way to develop your confidence as a dancer so I do encourage students to take advantage of the tango social events around Cape Town
