8:45pm – Tango Cape Town Classes with Eric and Ines – CREAMY VOLCADAS (All Levels)

February 20 @ 8:45 pm - 10:00 pm

This will be the 20th year that Eric has been visiting Cape Town. Yes. 20 years ago in May,
 he visited us for the first time. Rodney and Sally invited him here and undertook to finance
the ticket etc. A very brave, but prescient, move by them and it has paid off hugely.
At that time I had been teaching Argentine Tango for a number of years but it was a very rudimentary
and fractured English style and not a travelling style that could be danced at a milonga.
His style really was like the tango of Buenos Aires, danced by the milongueros.
The classes were held in the Obs Community Centre Main Hall and ended in a milonga,
 our first Cape Town milonga.
Other teachers visiting from El Corte have been Claartje, twice, and Komala, once
and finally Ines about 5 times.
And there were many Cape Town dancers who ended up at International Week in Nijmegen
every July. An intensive week’s saturation in Tango workshops, social dancing and surprises
that I attended again in 2017.
In celebration of that anniversary we are offering Workshops with Eric item #1 below
and again this year it is great that he will be joined by Ines Moussavi from Berlin.
Ines has been visiting for the last 5 years each February.
