The workshop is $25 for Synergy members, $30 otherwise. 6-7:30 at 5 Eliza Street, Newtown. 2nd Sunday of the month (14 April is the first one).   

Jewel Lab is beautiful!
Thank you for bringing your sparkling smiles to the party. Some people asked for the words that I spoke, and I’ve put them here.
Jewel Lab is dark and red every week with 25% alternative music, no cortinas to interrupt you, and fabulous food.

Jewel Lab: Milonga Experimental is Sydney’s reddest milonga, with a professional DJ sound system, comfortable couches for lounging and chatting, ice water, gourmet treats, and open-minded tango.
Tuesdays 8:30-midnight at the Colombian Hotel, 117 Oxford at Crown.

I’ve written a bunch of new blog posts lately
  • “Hold me like a man
  • Slippage and Fracture in Transmission
  • Why is Vio so hard to follow? (a post for folks who’ve danced with me in a milonga but aren’t my students)
  • Tango vocabulary (a checklist)

I want you to know that you are not alone…

… neither in your dreams for tango nor in your frustrations.

My deepest desire is the same as all my students and friends … those who have yet to start dancing and those who dance a lot.

It’s partnership.

One thing I’ve learned on this quest, we need to:

Stop Waiting for Partners, and start Building them.

I’ve written a 10-step Action Plan.

Are you ready to find the Partners you want?
