It takes two to Tango

” I teach Tango, I organise Tango, I write about Tango, I DJ… I really love it…”  is what Melina Sedo had to say when John chatted to her …. after an exciting completely sold out weekend of workshops with Detlef and Melina in April.

Read what Melina has to say about being a dancer in response to Johns question as follows “I have heard you say that you don’t consider yourself to be a “dancer”.  This might be surprising for the people that took your workshops or who watched the demo on Saturday night”.

“First and foremost let me thank you for organizing such a great event. It is always a pleasure to come to a new place and I think we managed to connect nicely to the local dancers. I know that our concepts cannot speak to everyone, but the Cambridge Tangueros worked very intensively during the classes. I hope that they appreciated our ideas.

As for being a dancer…. Well, “A DANCER” is such a huge word. Actually I am a little bit intimidated by it. I have been dancing all my life: classical dance, modern dance, ballroom dances, Rock’n Roll, Flamenco… but I was never trained as a professional dancer and I never aspired to do so. Well, for a short period as a teen maybe. But then I noticed, that I was neither talented, nor dedicated enough to become a professional. To do so, you have to work very hard and give up everything else. I had and still have got so many other interests… I could never have given them up, to work all day on my pointe (or now boleo) technique. A dancer has to strive for perfection in his/her dance – I never had the time or aspiration to do that. In Tango, I try to apply our principles of communication and movement as good as possible, but when I dance, my biggest attention goes to the connection to the partner, the embrace and to the music. Being elegant, perfect or virtuous come in second for me. A DANCER for me is someone who had a professional training as a dancer and – there comes my next argument – spends most of his time, dancing, practicing, performing…” Click here for information about Tango Lessons in Cambridge

Company Review

With summer almost here we felt our home needed some attention and we needed a change; however, with our growing family the budget was tight.

We had a superb redecorating job done of our home by South London Refurbishments; they gave us great advice as we struggled to choose the colour scheme whilst being mindful of the tight budget.

The next project they are about to start is Loft Conversions South London. See what areas they cover in the South of London.
