There were a few moments at the Winter Ball when time appeared to slow down and this – for me – was one of them.

This is the seventh year we’ve put on our Annual Tango Ball – the only “milonga” David and I organise in the year – and this glorious venue never fails to give me goose bumps!

When you dance you want to feel. And it is so much easier to feel when you dance in that magical hall, with beautiful lighting, breathtaking music and your very favourite dancer guiding you.

Not to mention the warmth from the audience – the very best audience you can have – your own tango students, friends and family.

I wish I had had a crystal ball ten years ago when David and I arrived in London and set up Tango Movement. I don’t think I would have believe what I saw. But it was certainly what we would have hoped for!

And finally, that most special of surprises that David arranged for me at the end. Moments to be cherished always.

Thank you again to everyone who came! It was an incredible Ten Year Anniversary Celebration for Tango Movement.

Our Tango Movement Winter Ball took place on 21 January 2017.

All proceeds go to help causes supported by APARU (The Association of Argentine Professionals in the UK), this year providing medical health care to visually impaired people in poverty-stricken areas of Argentina.

Over the years, we have raised £20,000 for charity through our milonga and through the support of our students and the wider tango community in London.
