TangoLife Classes Jan 24 +

Dear TangoLovers,

As many of you know, I am heading to Colorado to ski for 10 days (well, doubtful I will ski EVERY DAY!).  You may be interested to know that my new ski boots and poles are black and red–very tango, you see…  

I am so pleased to leave you in the capable hands and dancing feet of David Beaumier, Eric Cole, and a cast of helpers for the practica tonight.  I look forward to seeing you at the Bollywood Milonga on Feb 5, back in my normal tango heels!

Just the facts calendar items, January 2017:


“Big Class before the BellTower Practica”
Come one and all to our new BIGGER CLASS, with more students, more technique drills, and a full uninterrupted hour to develop step sequences and grow your tango from the ground up. Get your shoes on by 6 pm, and let’s get this tango moving! No experience needed, but all levels will be challenged to reach their best abilities. Drop in.
Class: 6-7 pm, beginner/early intermediate levels. $10.

Instructors: Rebecca Niemier, David Beaumier, Victor Flores.

BellTower Studio, 1430 N Garden St, Bellingham


EVERY TUESDAY, Come practice your tango with everyone, or just your favorite partner. Work out those moves and technique you learned in class in our relaxed setting! Exquisite tango music will be pouring up through the Bell Tower, at the purple building where N Garden and Ellis streets intersect. The 1100 SQ FT sprung bamboo floor is wonderful, there’s a great sound system, mirrors that will not lie, and even a ballet bar. Average number of dancers is holding steady at 26-30. Save a landfill and bring a water bottle. Street parking is free.

Practica: 7-9 pm. All levels are welcome. $5 each.

BellTower Studio, 1430 N Garden St, Bellingham

Hosted by Rebecca and the B’ham community


Going for it: Working into sustained close embrace, as comfort and ability allow, we polish fundamental patterns everyone should know, with variations and smooth transitions. Intermediate concepts, including the purpose behind sacadas, molinetes, back crosses, embellishments. Emphasis on proficiency and musicality. Getting comfortable with vals and milonga songs. Understanding differences between various tango styles. Digging into the wisdom and surprising dynamics of the milonguero style. Please RSVP for space availability.

Thursdays, Intermediate level, 7-8:30 pm. $10.

TangoLife Studio, 2610 Likely Ct.

Assistant teacher: Eric Cole.


Still just $40/hour or $50/1.5 hour, for one or two people. (This is part of my investment in growing the community. Most teachers charge $70-100.) Typically we really do accomplish a month of progress in one session, for men or women. Taking one private every 4-6 weeks will keep bad habits in check and progress going forward. I’m available afternoons, some evenings and weekends by appointment.
