Circles in the pool.

There is a bit of confusion this week, at the Shrewsbury practica we had two guests; Ian and Jeremy. The confusion comes from nobody knowing exactly where they are from.  Some say Leominster others Hereford and even Ludlow, but who really cares we welcomed them as usual and enjoyed their company.

They gave individual attention to almost everyone, even Viv got some coaching with her volcadas, personally I think her volcadas are very nice, but then I am biased.

Before we retired to The Coracle I asked if anyone would be interested in going to Tango Bangor, not that I would be able to go myself, but any advertising has to help.

This brings me to the title of this post. Tango Bangor is a small group that suffers from being isolated from others. Likewise Aberystwyth tango which I am still struggling to try and get into contact with.

These small groups are like circles in the pool, as they grow the boundries eventually meet and cross. When this happens more groups start to appear, and so exponentially, the tango community grows.

So it was with some distress I find that tango Bangor is in trouble. Anna the leading light, webmaster, top dancer, organiser, is loosing money. The fact that she has just had a baby, also interferes with her ability to keep things going.

I have posted the dates on my monthly schedule, even though I realise that most of my readers will not be able to go, but if I can add just one more dancer it will help.

I will try and keep you posted how things are going in this outpost of Wales, lets hope we do not loose another venue, because as Anna says if this goes she will have no Tango.

Help and ideas are welcomed, also if there are any other small isolated groups out there, get in touch, we need to keep connected.

Remember “We are not Alone” Mulder and Scully.

Checking my rota, if all goes well I could get there June 23rd. I hope it is still running.
