 ~~~ 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 (?)

~ How to find the Auckland Art Gallery Amphitheatre? ~

Facing the main entrance of the Art Gallery from the outside: Walk up the stairs on your left, then continuing onto the second set of stairs on your right towards Albert Park (the Art Gallery’s coffee shop is also on your right). You will come to an open area under a beautiful roof where you can view inside of the Art Gallery, that is the Amphitheatre.

    Husband and I learnt some Tango with John Young some years ago however haven’t danced for a long time.
    Are these classes only for students or also for ‘older’ adults?
