19 Feb MPG overview of 2015
Another successful year for MPG, we
- continue to consolidate our Practicas
- Bella Union Milongas grew from strength to strength
- Buxton Hall bi-monthly milongas have become the premier tango events in Melbourne
- We celebrated our 3rd Birthday in May, who would have thought
As well as our regular events in April 2015 we donated to UNICEF Cyclone Pam Appeal to support the children affected by this natural disaster our Melbourne tango community supported this initiative with strong response.
In June we “purchased” a workshop with Cecilia Gonzales and Facundo Gil Jauregui which was available to our members at no cost. Many took advantage of this.
In July we introduced the newly elected MPG Committee, this time with 6 members, making the sharing of our commitments and ideas more fun and workload easier.
August saw us hosting Pablo Inza and Sofia Saborido who were much appreciated by introducing a more “organic” way of teaching. This was their first time in Melbourne and it was a success for MPG and our members.
We also organized Musicality Workshop with Keith Elshaw who specializes in restoration of tango music from the golden era. His workshop was well attended and very, very interesting. MPG also purchased set of music from Keith to use in our Practicas, and he DJ-ed for us at BU – lucky us.
The rest of the year continued with our regular events which now mean we have anywhere between 4 to 5 events each month.
New events and hosting are planned for 2016 and we are sure that with your support it will be another successful year.
