 ~~~ Story of ATSA ~~~

Welcome to the Argentine Tango Student Association (ATSA)!

 I’m Fritz, currently a second-year student in Bachelor of Creative Technology. This ATSA club was founded by Sheldon, Kelly and me; the idea is to create an association/platform that allows students all over Auckland to learn, practice and share Tango!

Never thought I would ever dance in my life until half way through the last year in high school; when I accidentally walked into a Tango Practica (a session where people practice their tango). Two years later I thought Tango is one very interesting thing that happened to me so…I thought you might like it as well (?)

Toco Tango Practica – Takapuna @ Takapuna Taitamariki Guide Centre
Oct 8 @ 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm

This Practica aims to provide a friendly, welcoming space to practice dancing tango.

There are no teachers as such – but help and feedback from other dancers is welcomed. We play music in Tandas but there isn’t a set format for how you make the most of your afternoon. You can work on your own individual tango skills at your pace (with a partner) and can talk with friends and other dancers there, to get some informal help or advice on anything that is not working out. Mistakes are allowed!

The hall is air conditioned in Summer, warm in Winter … and we can open the doors along one side to the deck during the seasons in between.

We always enjoy a home-baked afternoon tea as a feature of this Practica … it’s included in the $10 entry fee 🙂

 

The Taitamariki Guide Hall in Takapuna just five minutes drive over the Harbour Bridge; or 10-15 minutes walk from the Akoranga Station on the Northern Express Busway from Britomart 🙂 There’s plenty of parking near the hall – You can use the parking spaces marked “Permit Holders Only”; or park around the back of the hall. To find us, take the entrance to the Reserve off Auburn Street (directly opposite Como Street). The hall is right at the end of the cul-de-sac.
