May your (tango) dreams come true in 2013!


Happy New Year to our dear tango friends!

We rang in the new year with a kiss amidst piles of boxes and furniture we are organizing  for the movers who come this week.  Our dream of buying a house came true in 2012, as did our goal of teaching more tango classes in more communities (a special shout out to London, Kitchener and Burlington, and our continued gratitude to Hamilton and Toronto!!).

Our craziest goal for 2013 is to travel to Iceland!  Michelle takes full credit for this one.  It has been on her radar for a few years, but during the last few months, Icelandic culture (music, literature, etc.), news and friends’ travel stories have been finding a way into her daily life via the radio and internet.  So much so that we decided to make a plan to visit this magical place.

What goals do you have for 2013?

If any of them have to do with tango, we would love to help you to achieve them!  Check out our updated class schedule or contact us directly at:  miguelymichelletango (at) gmail.com

Warm wishes and great hopes for a wonderful year ahead,

Miguel and Michelle
