Short Film + Milonga in January

Hi everyone,

Something to think about...

There are some of you very talented with cameras.
We are planning a film/milonga night sometime in December/January.

What we would like you to try your hands at is a short film or a succession of photos / cartoons / animations presentation, as short as you like but not longer then 7 minutes.

The film theme of course is argentine tango or anything that has to do with it. May be a narrative, an abstract, a romance... anything that comes to your head.

We will then organise a 1 hour film session on cushions with popcorn and a milonga afterward.

Surprise me - be creative, shocking, funny, just go mad... lets share a piece of each others minds :)

Love,
Nathalie

Intermedios April 2010 Cycle

UPDATE!!!

Due to lack of bookings for Intermedios 2, we will only be holding Intermedios 1 for the time being. Lessons will be held every Tuesday at 7:30pm, followed by a general Practica. Intermedios 2 will be reintroduced later.

First lesson will be held on Tuesday 30th at 39, Mrabat Str., Sliema.

Please don't forget to email your booking to Claudia



Due to the increase in the number of students, Intermedios will now become:

Intermedios 1: for those who have been at intermediate level for less than 6 months
Intermedios 2: for those who have been at intermediate level for 6 months or more

Lessons will be held every Tuesday, starting on 30th March.

Intermedios 1: 19:20 - 20:50
Intermedios 2: 21:10 - 22:40

To benefit most from these lessons, it is suggested that you apply for that which is most appropriate for your level. If you are not sure, please ask your teachers.

As always, apply in pairs by emailing Claudia

€30 for one batch
€45 for both batches

Location:
Tues 30th at 39, Mrabat Str. Sliema
Remaining Tuesdays at the University Common Room

March Practicas

Two weeks with no lessons are by no means an excuse to forget everything and get rusty! Polish up what you've learnt & experiment further during the next two practicas that Nathalie is holding.

Tuesday 16th March 2010 and Tuesday 23rd March 2010 from 7.30pm onwards at Sliema

€ 3.00 per practica (pay the purse at the door)

Pricipiantes April 2010 Cycle

For those of you that are enjoying the Primeros Pasos and would like to continue, the next level would be Principiantes.

If you still feel very shaky on the elements that you've done in the Primeros, you may repeat the course at half price (€20).The primeros pasos will be held on the same dates as the Principiantes but at 7.30pm. You may also take both classes in parallel so that you continue consolidating the elements of Primeros Pasos, whilst learning new elements.

Dates
Monday 29th Mar at 39, Mrabat Road, Sliema
Monday 5th Apr at University Common Room
Monday 12th Apr at University Common Room
Monday 19th Apr at University Common Room

Time: 9.00pm
Price €40 (Senior citizens and full time students 30euros)

Lessons are 1:30 hours long.

To apply, please email Nathalie. It would be ideal if you try to apply in pairs - ask fellow dancers during classes, practicas or milongas, and remember that we will change partners during lessons so it does not necessarily mean that you have to remain with the same partner throughout the lesson.

Primeros Pasos April 2010

Tango Argentino - Primeros Pasos
(introductory course for complete beginners)
