Farewell Milonga Pichuqueando for Cecilia Pagani

Last night was a very special milonga to honor our good friend and beautiful milonguera, Cecilia Pagani,before she relocates to Atlanta, GA
We had the milonga at Piazza Italia and we had live music.

Maestro Julian Hasse was at the bandoneon and David Garcia was at the guitar  and the live music were compliments of Jason Laughlin, Cecilia’s dance partner.


Here are the photos of the evening.


Performance at Parizade

Such a fun weekend with performances at Parizade in Durham with Nick Jones and Diana Cruz.

Brigitta Winkler

We had the pleasure to have Brigitta Winkler this week-end in Durham. Jason Laughlin of tangophilia brings her to the area once a year. Brigitta is a beautiful and well-known tango teacher, and dancer from Berlin.

However when you are around Brigitta she is….way more.

Brigitta will acknowledge you anywhere she will see you whether it is in a coffee shop, or at a very popular tango festival. She is one of this people who I love. Yes of course I love her as a dancer, but more I love her as a person. She is humble, kind, and a positive teacher.

When you meet  teachers like Brigitta Winkler, Alicia Pons, Tomas Howlin, Korey and Adeline Ireland, Rosa Corisco, Rachel Greenberg and Fabias Salas to name a few, you know they are from a different league.

Not  just in their dancing, but also in their respect for others people whoever they are….And that is what I call a teacher.

Enjoy these photos I took during the workshop and the performance of Brigitta and Jason.
