Who on Earth are we?

Posted on: April 21st, 2009 by tanguera

We are a group of slightly unhinged tango addicts who have an insatiable appetite for dancing in new places with new people and have a bit too much time on our hands.

Not enough free time, however, to constantly check the dozen or so websites run by the various tango groups so we got our heads together and decided (in true tango form) that we should have our own ‘sounding board’ where we can inform the tango community of absolutely everything in a one-stop-shop type of thingy.

we value your comments more than you know (cos it makes our job that bit easier, come on you know it’s true) so feel free to express ideas, opinions on various events you have been to…..you never know WHO could be reading!

But please, yeah, let’s keep it about tango ok? No one wants to hear about how your shopping trolley won’t go in a straight line or that you got a ticket cos you parked in the disabled bay…UNLESS it was outside a milonga!!!

ok? got the idea?  Brill. Welcome to the blog. Tanguera x

    Hey Haris – you should check out some of our posts on the subject. I’m not sure if you are after mens shoes of ladies shoes but there is some useful info there – Some thoughts on getting well heeled – for men… and http://www.tangohub.co.uk/2011/09/getting-well-heeled/ .. if you are after mens shoes they have a good selection at http://www.vidadance.com/ that wont leave you looking like an extra in a gangster movie ( http://www.tangohub.co.uk/2012/10/two-tone-dance-shoes )
