I am working on my first piece of choreography. Really exciting but quite a challenge as I am a champion of improvisation in the dance. As I started to think about performance, I felt that choreography is a useful tool. “But performance isn’t dancing in the Milongas..” my inner tango voice said to me, yes it’s not.

Hope you can make it, the Shunt Lounge is a very atmospheric place….
