Hello everyone,  


Dance at your favourite milonga/practica this weekend and enjoy the Spring weather (and school holidays). Have your masks with you!


From Cath:

Sunshine Coast Tango Marathon Video
Here is the last video from the Saturday night of the Marathon weekend. I asked Liz & Rory (Diez Cuerdas) if they could play a tanda of Vals in memory of Sue Jones. They were very happy to do that. The music was beautiful. Later I asked Adrian if he had enough footage of the tanda. He did and here it is - the Sue Jones Memorial Tanda. Big thanks to Liz & Rory for their beautiful music and to Adrian for putting the video together.
It is a bit solemn to begin with (I was a bit upset as I was missing her) but by the end we are celebrating her life!
