Dear friends, it’s time to let go the lingering memories of pleasure, excitement and surprise of last year’s festival and prepare your imagination for new and fresh horizons. I know that this year’s choice of master teachers will excel in continuing the Byron Bay Tango Festival (BBTF) tradition of being world class, cutting edge and most of all inspirational. The world of Argentine Tango is embracing enthusiastically the artistry of Leonel Di Cocco and Carolina Giannini. Their performances are beautifully crafted and executed with the exuberance and abandon of youth and the precision of masters. We are in for a rare treat.
Your expectations of unending dancing will be satisfied by daily practicas and nightly milongas with brilliant DJs and live music from our most notable exponents of Argentine Tango, the inimitable Mendoza Tango Quartet. However, your BBTF experience will be incomplete without the interactive workshops on art (with Jan Rae) and music (with Mendoza). And finally, I urge you not to miss out on this year’s Piazzolla Concert. I look forward to meeting you in that special part of Earth that is Byron Bay and sharing that special dance we know as Tango.
