New year, more Tango!

Hello everyone, and happy new year!

The webpage has been a bit forgotten,  but we hope that many people has gotten information through our facebook page and the tango group for Haugesund. We hope to update more frequently for this new, exciting tango year!

For a quick overview, we are starting with regular tango courses on Mondays! The first round starts already tomorrow (2018-01-08), and we hope to have more of these during the spring. It is our own Kjell Frode and Mona that will teach you all of the basics of tango! It will be good both if you are completly new to tango, or if you would like to refreshen your tango skills. For more information and signup you can see our event.

This Thursday (2018-01-11) we are starting up again with our practica and milonga nights. Practica starts at 19:00 and milonga at 20:00 after. We will be at Saualoftet during the spring, but there might be some room changes. Gamle Slaktehuset are hosting part of the library, so they have less rooms than before. If you can’t find us then ask in the reception.

In February (2018-02-01 until 2018-02-04) we have Damian back again with us for a weekend! The plan for the weekend is not yet complete, but we will post more updates about it. The facebook event for it can be found here. We will also have a Gatsby milonga night at Saturday night that weekend! Event for that can be found here.

We hope to give you all a very nice tango year here in Haugesund! Best wishes from all of us in the TangoTare styret 🙂
