It's that time of year when we wind down all our classes and take a short break from tango.

It's been another amazing year for us at Tango Movement.

I enjoyed teaching classes right up until the night before my second baby was born in July. It was a special feeling to dance with the baby inside me and I didn't feel tempted to give up for a second! After some time off on maternity leave, I was back teaching classes by mid-September.

This year, we've worked hard on developing our weekend workshop themes, aiming always to help our students grow both technically and artistically, and to bring out the very best in them. We've continued to focus on creating the warm, nurturing atmosphere that our classes have become known for, so that we all feel that we are much more than a tango school ... more a tango family!

Highlights of this year have been our participation in the Che Tango Festival, in which I danced 7 months pregnant, our students' wonderful performance at the UK Tango Championship, our amazing sun-blessed garden party and, of course, hosting tango legend Alejandra MantiƱan for workshops over two weekends.

And how can we forget Alejandra and David's exhilarating, improvised performance at Negracha Tango Club in October? Two dancers who had scarcely danced with each other before stepped out onto the dance floor and exhibited an immediate connection and chemistry. Just like that. Magic. This, people, is what tango is all about!

Thank you everyone for making 2016 what it was and Tango Movement what it is. It is a never-ending source of happiness for us. As we get ready for our 10th anniversary year (gulp!), please enjoy this video of our favourite parts of 2016.

We'd like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year, wherever you may be spending it.

Wishing you health, happiness and a lot of tango in 2017! We can't wait to get started!

With much love,

David & Kim
