It’s been a funny old week in London town.
Tuesday and Wednesday brought a tube strike, bringing swathes of London to a halt. And Thursday brought Storm Doris, bringing down trees and causing yet more travel disruption.
But rain, shine, storm or strike, tangueros need their weekly tango fix! A student last year walked from the City to the West End during a tube strike to make one of our classes!
We knew a mere tube strike and storm would not keep you away! We were there ready to receive you and it was great to have a crowd of you in class with us this week.
It reminded me of a conversation we had with our longest standing students just the other week. He was one of our very first students when we started Tango Movement back in 2007.
We get a lot of amazing feedback about our classes but when we asked him what made him come back year after year, his feedback was to the point:
”You’re always there. I know if I turn up at 8 pm on a Tuesday, Wednesday or whenever, you’ll be there, starting on time as usual.”
It sounds like a small thing, but we know it is important. We know your time is precious. And if you make the effort to turn up to a class, we will make the same effort to be there, with the same energy, and the same care and attention that you’ve grown to expect for us.
Bring on the storms and strikes, we’re tangoing on.
I was just checking out today’s blog post and got linked to this old one. You can safely add a pandemic and lockdowns to that list in 2021! Through the wild and turbulent ride that has been 2020 and 2021, I’ve always kept my Friday evenings free for learning Tango. Knowing that you will both be there to give another amazing class as a Fri evening constant. The great thing about an online class is that it can continue despite rain, shine, storm or strike. And you get to work on technique in finer detail from home. It is such a great type of teaching experience to have in addition to studio classes. Hope some online classes continue in the future 🙂
