On Thursday night, we celebrated the 79th birthday of our dear student and friend Sue.
Sue has been studying tango with us for nearly 10 years now and comes to our advanced class. No one who sees her dance can believe she is 79 years young!
Watch her traditional birthday tango Vals (waltz) in her celebration after class.
About the Birthday Vals
The Birthday Vals is one of my very favourite tango traditions. Each dancer in the room takes it in turn to dance with the birthday girl/boy. It is an exhilarating feeling to go from one dancer to the next, each with their own energy, personality and interpretation.
Sue is a more accomplished dancer than most dancers half her age! She dances several nights a week and is able to keep up with the most energetic of partners. Correction: they are able to keep up with her!
Sue, here’s to many many more years of dancing. Thank you making us believe that we will all be able to do it too!
