Tango is rapidly becoming a serious global phenomena. Even in places like India they have embraced this famous argentine dance. I had the pleasure to spend some time this winter in Goa, famous for its hippy beaches discovered in the sixties.
In  a yoga/pilates studio neatly situated between Anjuna and Vagator beach 
i set up my tango classes. Twice a week. The friday class was followed by a guided practica.
The students formed a wide array of inernational long and short term visitors to Goa.
Imagine: daily beachlife, coconut grooves, lovely locals, attractive travellers, fabulous food, (trance)parties and....tango!

In fact it was so tasty, im already planning  my trip for next winter 2009/10!
If all goes according to plan, I'll be back in Anjuna/Goa around dec.2009. There will be more classes, different levels, milongas and the occasional performance.. It seemed that amongst all the -highly recommendable- yoga, meditation, kitesurfing, deltaflying etc. already on the menu, my very own special blend of 'spicy' tango went down very well!
So if you're thinking of hidding out that direction, and interested in brushing up on your tango or just always wanted to learn it, heres your chance.
Get ready for serious sunset milongas. And don't forget to bring the shoes :-o

Just keep checking this blog for any news/updates on the Goan tango experience !
