Hello everyone,  


Some new regular events have been added to the calendar so check them out. Plenty of dance choices available in Brisbane and places south this coming week.

From Cecilia:

Just a reminder about Tango Meets Jazz – A Night at a Bar in La Boca.  Thursday November 11

  1.  Only one table left inside but tables on the deck are available to be booked.  There are 9 tables of two out there which are under cover.
  2. We are bringing Argentinian flavours into the food and wine for the evening and giving the Club a bar in La Boca atmosphere so it should be a lot of fun.

Tango meets Jazz - Thursday 11 November 2021

Come and join us for a memorable night in the bars of La Boca where Tango evolved in Bueno Aires. Wear your best tango La Boca bar outfits and look ”the part” whilst you dance to contemporary arrangements of Diez and Gardel with Lochlan Morrissey and Joel Woods from La  Vuelta,  and Liz Young with Rory Dollard from Diez Cuerdas. You will be intoxicated by the music, the atmosphere and the emotion, passion and romance that paint a picture of the dance called “Tango.”  The Brisbane Jazz Cub is on the Brisbane River and with its unique character is the perfect venue for “A Night in a Bar in La Boca.

Dancing is allowed inside and outside on the deck.  This is a dancing and listening event. It is our last Tango Meets Jazz event for the year and we will resume in January, 2022.

There will be some video footage of La Boca from 6.30pm-7.30pm to put you in the mood.
