Who are the best leaders on the dance floor and what is it that sets them apart from the rest?
You could argue that this is a subjective thing, but there is some consensus in the tango world on overall qualities to be aspired to.
To call it a first dance would – I think – be a little bit of a stretch.
In fact I daren’t even put a number on it, given we’ve been married for 10 years and dance partners for close to 15.
So how about a dance that will always stand out in our memory? Without doubt! And that – considering the number of times we have danced together – has got to make it very special!
Some time back at the peak of lockdown, I was feeling disappinted that our 10-year wedding anniversary would pass without celebration. I know there were – and are still – far greater problems in the world so please forgive me this moment of self-absorption.
But little did I know that David was planning a celebration that would trump all the plans we had been forced to cancel because of Covid.
Something I in fact has always wanted to do: a renewal of our wedding vows (and party!) in our garden.
David and I are excited to announce our “Big Christmas Night In” this Wednesday 23 December at 20:30 GMT. Please join us via Zoom with a glass of bubbly, some nibbles and a lot of festive cheer! We will be taking a trip down memory lane with a slideshow of past...
Here’s a little compilation of clips from our online classes.
We think it gives a good glimpse into the online tango world and you may get an idea why some people say they are enjoying online as much as in person classes!
When Covid-19 crashed into our lives, it impacted us all in a multitude of ways.
As the first cases trickled into the UK, one young couple were planning to take their first wedding dance lesson.
The class went really well but little did they know it would be their last. The Covid-19 trickle had become a flood. And the world came to a halt.
A few weeks went by and David and I got in touch to suggest online classes. We had never taught a couple their wedding dance online before but we were convinced that Covid-19 needn’t get in the way of their plans.
But Sarah and Kieron were doubtful. It was not what they had envisaged. Like many people, they were a little sceptical that online classes could even work.
Fast forward two months (and four or five classes later) and well, quite simply …. wow!
