2014 Feedback

“Thank you for a fabulous Festival…seriously brilliant music from great DJs and Tángalo, great venues, memorable tandas and perfect spring weather. Awesome weekend.”

“The dancers were very welcoming and generous … the Asado was amazing and the film was another real highlight. Well done Canberra Tango Community! It has been a real pleasure!”

“Thank you! It was amazing and exceeded my expectations :)”

“… a most WONDERFUL time with you all… You were all so welcoming to me and it was just like in the old days when a stranger comes to town, the town welcomes you ….  You could not have done anything better.  …I met old friends and made plenty of new ones from Adelaide and Brisbane, what a weekend!”

“Great music, great people, great dancers. Decoration was beautiful, appreciated the supper. Asado amazing. Film excellent, live music created a good contrast. ”

“…very professionally organised and it exceeded my expectations. …The meet-and-greet with a personal escort to allocated seating at tables is especially impressive as it made me feel very welcome. And it was a great idea to have different tables with different people at each milonga unless individuals have nominated people they want to sit with.”

“ it just keeps getting better , once again well organised and quite seamless.”

“Tango in the Spring is a high point of the tango calendar. The combination of the quality of the organisation, venues and the music made for a great weekend. But it was the little touches like the room decorations and individual escorting to the tables that differentiated this event and made it feel special. …felt like somebody thought about the event from a participant’s viewpoint as opposed to an organiser trying to make money… ”

“…another fabulous event. Congratulations!! People were really friendly and welcoming …it was affordable & relaxed, venues were tastefully decorated, lighting was perfect for the cabeceo, furniture was well-arranged so people could circulate without interfering with the dancers, cabeceo was encouraged, sound quality was excellent, of course!! The seating plan encouraged us to meet a few new people.”

“I can easily understand why so many dancers keep returning. My overriding impression was that we were well looked after – both socially and with quality music and venues. A very professional and thoughtfully created event.”

“Couldn’t fault it. … The events ran smoothly. Venues were spacious and fresh. Even the participants, a factor you have no control over, were a great “mob”.”

“I had a great time.  I was very impressed with the organization of every event.  The venues were great… All the people I met from Canberra were lovely, and it was really fabulous meeting so many people from other parts of Australia.”
