Gosh, looking at the date of the last post, it’s been more than two and a half years since I last updated my tango blog!
These days I am dancing even less than two years ago. Apart from attending three maestro events (one night each), I have not been to any regular milongas this year. Relocating to a different country, and changes in personal life really forces you to re-prioritise your leisure time. Hopefully as life gets back to normal, I can return to dancing which has been an important part of my life for the past 14-15 years – assuming I have not lost the zest for it by then…
Although I am still keeping up with tango news in the blogosphere (not sure if I just made up the word!?), have not been in the mood to write anything lately.
Anyway, just a quick announcement that I will be offloading the schedule of milonga and practicas in Singapore maintained locally to a calendar site based on Google Calendar, Tango Singapore event guide. In any case, I think the calendar format is still better for keeping track of regular events, especially when there are sudden changes to a fixed event but only for a short period. By the way, there is a rudimentary version specifically for smart phones/mobile browsers too. Hopefully this can be useful to visitors to Singapore who are looking for regularly scheduled tango happenings.
2012, like all new years, is supposed to start with a bang. Unfortunately the tango world has lost yet another of its stars – and a great personal teacher – Andrea Missé. Having hosted a couple of her previous tours to Singapore with Javier Rodriguez, no words can describe how saddened I am by this tragic news. Thank you for your guidance and generosity. RIP.
My prayers go out to her family, some of whom I understand still remains in intensive care at this moment.
