Terri's Report January 12th
GROUP LESSON: Was conducted by our very own guest instructor/stylish dancer
He was wonderfully instructive and smoothly imparted another style alongside sharp techniques that everyone picked up on easily.
I appreciate how he pulls out one of our own ladies to participate and
guide. It is the best way to learn and build confidence at the same time.
*(See the video of the end of the class demonstration.)
"His teaching style offers exactly what I intended for us: diversity!"
Tango is diverse. Tango is unique to your personality. Tango is the
expression of your passion. Tango is never boring!
You will benefit from his passion, style, and simplicity. Bravo! Welcome to our Milonga."
Last week, our ever popular and charming DJ
Jack Hanley spun for us the hottest selections from the most popular arrangements by Master Composers and Orchestras. He threw in a few Nuevo. Everyone was on the floor enjoying these selections.
We can really appreciate a DJ that loves to dance with the ladies and
passionately play his best music for us.
Our DJ's bring their best music and play their heart out for us. Thank you Jack Hanley. well done! (See the videos)
Be sure to check out the videos from that night. Classy!

Remember and Remember -- here is where we always keep the traditional Argentine Tango alive!
Share the videos and photos with your friends on social media and encourage them to join us. We are not snooty here.
Encourage each other as much as I encourage you. Praise each other, compliment each other and coach each
other. We are not competitors. We are Tango dancers and Tango friends. Etiquette and traditional good manners set us apart from everywhere else.
Tango is not only about learning steps, but understanding and listening to the music.
Each artist interprets the same music /song that you dance to, but the musical styles are different.
Your ear, needs to listen so that you can dance to each interpretation from those artists elegantly.
It is written all over the place that the
best way to improve your dancing is to know the music you are dancing to as your body moves with the different styles, so that you may look and be lead gracefully on the dance floor.
Your style is yours. Own it.
Courtesy Corner: Common courtesy, good manners and tango etiquette always go a long way in making and keeping friends. What happens at Terri's Firehouse Tango - Stays in Terri's Firehouse Tango!
I offer everyone a variety of styles led by top shelf master instructors. I hire them to lead by example, coach you, improve your self confidence, and sharpen the skills you've already learned.
Our seasoned dancers and our new comers feel equally at ease. No fear.
We all learn from each other. We all coach each other. We all enjoy each other like no place else.
Your own unique style will be evident and noticed wherever you go to dance other than a Thursday night with us.
Naturally, every instructor has their own style and methodologies. What works and what sticks with you is all that
It has become quite evident that no matter where our Milongueros and Milongueras go to dance, their style and versatility are immediately recognizable as "you must be from Terri's
Firehouse Tango-Milonga II!"
Fun is the operative word. We are not only a showcase for the Tango Community, but the place to go and simply have fun, enjoy really good people and dance like you just don't care!
