Who would have ever thought that the day would come when we have more men than women wanting to dance tango!! If anyone has insights into the universe and its workings, please explain. I usually have women saying that there are few men and that they don't like to feel like wallflowers. Now we have fabulous men who are developing as good leaders wanting to dance. Hooray!!!! I would like to think that it will be a continuing trend as men in Cape Town realise that to lead a woman around the dance floor in the tango embrace is the coolest thing to do. I am so encouraged to see the development of these tangueros.
Ladies, where are you? I need followers for my Level 2 classes (see below) and we need to bump up the female quota at Friedas. Hope to see you there!

Dancing, dancing, dancing is the only route to becoming a good tango dancer!!
- Private Lessons - R300 person or R320 per couple. A great opportunity to have focuses feedback on your dancing
- Choreographies - A great opportunity to improve your dancing. Not only will you learn a range of new steps to a song, you will also learn the correct lead and follow, with focus on the technique of the movements. This is a fun project for a couple who may want to perform at a social event or one of the Milonga Africanas
