Hello everyone,  


Tango events on up the coast, down the coast and in Brisbane this weekend so make the most of the good weather and find a great place to dance. Follow the Covid rules and keep each other safe!


From Cecilia:

There are still seats available inside and outside at Tango meets Jazz at the Brisbane Jazz Club on Thursday. Booking details are in the event description below.


From Cath:

Sunshine Coast Tango Marathon Video - Happy Tango Feet
This is the second last video from the Marathon weekend. I thought it would be a bit of fun to watch dancer’s happy feet so here it is! You might recognise your shoes in the video. Enjoy!


Also, the Neo Tango Festival went well. Thanks to everyone who came along and had a great time.


From Judy:

Judy’s Tango Practica is due to restart Wednesday 15 September – that’s next week.


From John:

If you are a dance organiser or member of AUSDANCE QLD, there is a Zoom meeting on Thursday 9/9/2021 at 1pm to discuss vaccinations for Covid-19 in the dance community. Speak to John at jo...@lowry.com.au if you would like a say as the meeting is for members only.
