Well, Homer and Cristina flew out to San Fransisco today. It was great having them here and wonderful to have everyone who came along to the workshops, practicas, concepts and milongas. We had a great time sharing this event with you and hope you got a lot from their visit. In the future we hope to get them out to Australia again to further explore our tango. In the mean-time stay tuned for more TangoSpace events. This site will remain active, but will not be updated. Please refer to http://tango-space.blogspot.com/ for information about TangoSpace.

Tonight was the final workshop and practica being offered by Homer and Cristina. We had a great time learning about D'Arienzo. Later we danced while Homer DJ'd a fascinating set of traditional and alternative tracks. We had a great time and would like to thank everyone who came to the workshops, practicas, concepts and milongas over the past two weeks.

Just got back from our final Sunday Concept on colgadas with Homer and Cristina. It was a fantastic and vigorous four hours of intensive tango training. Much was learned by everyone who came. This evening we're off to a free DJ workshop being offered by Homer. We're all tired, but too much tango is never enough.

Just got back from the TangoSpace milonga where Homer and Cristina dazzled us once again with their performance. It was a great night with heaps of people joining in the farewell for Homer and Cristina despite a full day of workshops exploring close to open embrace transitions, developing and releasing torsion, and volcadas. We thank everyone who attended workshops and then showed up to the milonga to make it a success. We also thank everyone who helped us set-up the venue, organise food, and pack up at the conclusion of the evening. Can't tell you how much it meant to us.

Yesterday we had a fantastic workshop at TangoSpace on Di Sarli music and phrasing. It was great fun with lots of new insights into dancing to traditional tango music and the complexities of Carlos Di Sarli. We also got to meet Wendy who came all the way from New Zealand/Aotearoa to dance with us. Now we look forward to the next lot of workshops this weekend and the farewell milonga on Saturday night.

Today we had four hours of intensive training with the first of the Sunday Concepts on Advanced Turns and Sacadas. It was a great day with heaps of useful information for the diverse group of tango dancers at TangoSpace. The concept format is a fascinating and productive method for exploring tango. We are all now looking forward to next Sunday and colgadas.

Today we had three workshops with Homer and Cristina - Tango Games, Milonga and Valz. It was a great turn-out with lots of wonderful tango concepts explored. Everyone enjoyed Homer and Cristina's approachable, relaxed style of teaching. Tomorrow we begin the first of our Sunday Concept series. But first, tonight we dance, 9:00pm - 2:00am at 296 Churchill Ave. It promises to be a great night.
