So what’s the story?
First tango lesson October 3rd 2006. Five months learning tango in England. Arrived in Buenos Aires 9th March 2007. Started lessons with Ariel Yanovsky. These videos record my story after arriving in Argentina: at 8 weeks, at 16 weeks, at 7 months (one year dancing) and finally, at almost one year of being taught by Ariel. The most recent video of me dancing with Ariel, filmed by Catrin Strong in February 2008, is at the top…
… well almost at the top. In September 2009 I added another video. This one’s of Me and C. (that is Me and mi amor, my Argentine, Carlos). On 22nd August 2009 we danced for my Mum and Dad’s Golden Wedding Fiesta in Shrewsbury, England. We had a bit of space on the dance floor for the first time ever. We had our favourite music. We had people who loved us in the room. It was magic.
And why the videos?
It’s fun to remember.

And these are some of the more significant thoughts I’ve had about tango on my Buenos Aires tango journey as written on this blog:
