I have just received an email from a friend who wants to attend a workshop by the TiA peeps. "Don't you ever get to a point in your tango life when you think, why waste yet more money on a workshop..along with the 2-3 classes/2-3 milongas a week...never mnd the change of outfits/shoes etc," came my response. I have never attended a workshop. Why? A complete waste of money to my mind. Especially if one attends classes with (very good) travelling teachers each week (most of whom are from Argentina). Saturday she will miss having a p*ss up in a pub watching the Rugby World Cup with friends to spend twenty quid learning how to swing her leg in a circular movement behind. For two hours!!! The sceptic says spend the twenty quid on beers rather than puff out the pockets/pay the mortgage/bills etc. of those whose day jobs are as precarious as the British Summer. Am I alone here? Beginners be warned !!
