Dear <<First Name>>
It's Springtime! At least that's what the calendar says... and we know that the weather will start to warm up in the Southern Hemisphere and Summer will be upon us before we know it - and the outdoor milongas will resume in many parts of Australia. 

One of the most difficult tasks milonga organisers face is finding venues, particularly in the capital cities - Sydney is probably the worst. As clubs turn their dance floors into restaurants, or worse gambling rooms, or simply close down, the floors become more scarce. As a one-time organiser I continue to be amazed at the resourcefulness of organisers who discover new venues.

You will find Sydney milongas listed on the TangoAustralia Sydney calendar and also on the Sydneytango calendar... and you will find a list of tango schools and events on TangoAustralia's tango schools page

Yours in tango, 
Carol
