Art of Tango series

This week, one of my favourite teachers, Hsueh-tze Lee, will be arriving in Singapore to continue her Art of Tango series (March 2007, November 2007, November 2008). This will be her third visit in 2 years as a matter of fact.

Looking at the list of workshop topics is like venturing into a toy store with too many goodies to choose from! In particular I am especially looking forward to the following classes:

  • Enticing walks
  • The two classes on turns
  • Swirls and suspension in vals
  • The three classes devoted to different orchestras

Can’t wait till the workshops start. Thankfully this comes immediately after a company event that I am helping to organise is over, so that I can relax completely. 🙂

There will also be two “studio milongas” (to use the local parlance) for the workshop-averse people:

  1. Saturday 22 Nov, 9pm – 1am JJSalsarengue.
  2. Saturday 29 Nov, 9pm – 1am Abrazos

    Hi, Just found your blog and I’m interested in your thought on tandas, but the tandas page is broken. Do you still have this information?

    Hi Iain,

    I used to have some pages on tandas but they did not really contain any discussions or thoughts. It was just a list of tandas which I compiled (and which I managed to fit onto 60min-CDs) during the early days when I first started DJing at our milongas. After a while, they seemed a little “amateurish” which was why I removed the link… 🙂

    Is there anything that you are looking for in particular?

    Anyway, for the best general advice on tandas/DJing, I highly recommend the following:
    Tango Argentino de Tejas (Stephen Brown, USA)

    A friend of mine who is an excellent DJ also has some good insights into tandas on her blog from time to time: Royce’s Tango thoughts.
