Milongueras, Milongueros,

Our reduced scale summer program continues with Nuevo Tango lessons of ROBERT, at HAYES HALL lobby, TUESDAYS 7pm and FRIDAYS 9pm. Call Robert at 329-6108 to register. Use the dead season in Columbus to get more personal attention.

I posted some photos from my visit to Berlin last week: click on "Photos", left column of our website http://tango.osu.edu Strange people these Berliners: for them the summer is the high season. Actually all the time they have a high season, with about four Milongas a night. It is a city of 3 millions, about 4 times the size of our great capital city. But I guess when they do something, they do it well. Anyway, flier is at: http://download.tango.info/berlin.tango.info_2006-07_A4flyer.pdf
and my recommendation, from personal experience: Tuesday: Claerchen Ballhaus; Wednesday: Roter Salon; Thursday: Osthafen; Friday: Neue Nationalgalerie (openair) & the small hours: Walzerlinksgestrickt; Saturday: Ballhaus Rixdorf; Sunday: Tangoloft, then Loewenpalais, then Max und Moritz.

Anyway, Saturday they had LoveParade. For photos click "Photos1" at the homepage. Electro Music is in a sense the opposite of Tango Music, but I never forgot an olde love - I hope nobody would be upset at the photos there. (&www.loveparade.net)

Well, I thank Sumiko for letting me write this week's message, see you on the dance floor, I guess in late September,

Week of July 3rd

Here is this week's TangoOSU.

1) Royer closes for renovation--NO CLASS
2) This week's TangoOSU
3) Milonga (7/16) cancelled
4) Tango photos from Europe
5) Last Tango in....

ATTN: Royer closes f
or renovation--NO CLASS
Royer Student Activities Center will be under construction so that it can be used as a study room
. Therefore it will be closed for the rest of the summer. The room is scheduled to be closed from this Wednesday on. Francesco's last class with TangoOSU would have taken place on Wednesday, but due to this condition, it is cancelled. THERE WILL BE NO CLASS THIS WEDNESDAY AT ROYER and the rest of the summer.

2) This week's TangoOSU
But, there are classes going on at Hayes Hall, which is the oldest, historic building on campus (and it's airconditioned!). Here is the map:

And here is the current TangoOSU lesson schedule:

AYS with Robert at Hayes Hall
7pm- Progressive Beginners $5/$7

FRIDAYS with Robert at Hayes Hall
9pm- Progressive Beginners $5/$7

Robert is teaching Nuevo Tango style, and his cell phone number is (614)329-6108. Traditionally, there is less Tango activity in Columbus during the summer. Use this opportunity to
get more personal attention. For more information about Robert's class, click "Matrix Tango with Robert" on the right column, or simply click http://tango.osu.edu/robert.html

3) Milonga
(7/16) cancelled
We are afraid that the milonga originally scheduled on July 16th (SUN) is now cancelled due to the Royer renovation. We may plan at another location in the near future, so please frequently check our website (http://tango.osu.edu) for future events!

4) Tango photos from Europe

Yuval has uploaded some nice Tango photos from Europe. Check them out at http://tango.osu.edu (upper left, click "photos")

5) Last Tango in...
As is suggested above, Francesco and Pam's last lesson with TangoOSU was this past Sunday. (I'm sorry for those who could not make it!) We would like to thank them for their dedication and contributions to our organization, and wish them the best for their next endeavor.
