Toco Tango Practica – Takapuna @ Takapuna Taitamariki Hall
Dec 8 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 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.

Tea and Tango

15 December 2019 is the third Sunday in December and that means…

TEA and TANGO!

This time it’s our Christmas theme and we’re delighted to have DJ NIC HOLLAND stirring things up for us!

Many many thanks to those who made 17 November’s dance such an enjoyable event for all of us, including the very kind assistance of star helper Rumi Chosa as well as Marc and Hilda and Kelly and several others who helped out with many things before during and afterwards: hats off to you wonderful people!

Thanks heaps to Denise and Liz (and my wife) for the delectable cakes and brownies, and to our Tea Chef David, who kept us ably entertained as well as suitably quenched.   Most of all thanks to Maida for creating such an inspiring and festive play list, making dancing on the the day simply irresistible.

Join us on the 15th; it promises to be a festive affair!  The Parisian lot is usually empty on Sundays, assuring ease of parking, particularly for those who arrive early!  See you there!
