FREE – Tango On The Wharf @ Devonport Ferry Terminal Building
Feb 2 @ 3:30 pm – 6:00 pm

AHOY! All Auckland Tangueros,

As the summer season is fast approaching! we are changing the time to start a bit earlier.

Enjoy the magnificent Village of Devonport right on the wharf. It’s an area the Auckland Council have kindly set aside right inside the wharf with the good floor for dancing and a roof for all seasons.

A place where all the admiring passengers going to & from CBD can take tango inspiration. It’s a great venue with so much to offer. Including the best fish & chips, cafes, & old-world charm. Watch the marine world unfold right before your eyes.

Come and join us Once a Month –  every first Sunday of the month from 3.30 pm – 6.00 pm.

Just bring your shoes and a portable chair or cushion (in case you may want to sit out the odd tanda), thermos for drinks and warm jackets/ jersey – still a bit chilly sometimes.

Parking available out side the building and plenty of off-street parking around the area.

If coming from CBD via the Ferry, it’s only 12 minutes ride and boom! You’re there and ready to dance!💃💃💃🕺🕺🕺

See you there
Cecile Bale

Toco Tango Practica – Takapuna @ Takapuna Taitamariki Hall
Feb 9 @ 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.
