The tango year is hotting up! 
Dear <<First Name>>
While putting together this newsletter I decided to take a look at my favourite tango blog. Begun way back in 2008 Irene and Man Yung's tango blog is a source of fascinating tango information from someone who is very experienced in the tango world, and writes insightfully about tango technique, aspirations and the reality of the tango world. 
When you feel the need for an experienced tango friend, or you would like to read a first hand account of the tango world (because Irene's experiences are mirrored in most parts of the world) I can't recommend this blog too highly. 
And you will find that Irene's Tango Blog List will lead you to other fascinating blogs about tango - some you will and won't agree with.  It is making me think I should find the time  to post more often on Angelina's Tango Blog... as I find more time to get back on the dance floor. 
There's plenty happening! you'll find the details below. 
Yours in tango, 
Sit back with a your favourite refresher and enjoy! Another delightful and clever cartoon - but you need 8 minutes to watch it once!
