Winter Tango in Hanmer

11-13 August 2017


Thank you for coming to the first Winter Tango in Hanmer!

For those of you who didn't make out this year - it was a spectacular weekend ... we woke up on Friday morning to a soft covering of pure white snow! As the weekend progressed the snow came in big and small flurries like in a fairy tale (even as we sat in the hot pools!) and then on Sunday the sun came out exposing the snowclad mountains, the snowy roads melted away so we could all return home safely. 

We could not have asked for more perfect conditions!

Thanks to you who braved the unknown weather conditions ... it was worth it and not nearly as bad as the weather forecast made us believe!

Our DJs were AMAZING, Quique, Iain, Debs and Nina had us dancing every Tanda!  Actually we were even numbers as well - so no-one was sitting out unless they wanted to.  The food was delicious  - big thanks to Julie, Vera, Ute and Quique for baking our treats and a huge squeeze to Roland from Dovedale Bakeries for once again tempting our tastebuds with those divine Fruit Mince Pies!  

Stevan your Mulled Wine was smooth and moreish!

 Good effort Team Hanmer - let's do it again next year!

I have posted piccs on Facebook for those of you who have it.

Yours in tango



Winter Tango in Hanmer

held on 11 - 13 August 2017

will bring together dancers from all over New Zealand for the pleasure of social dancing.

A little bit like Summer Tango in Nelson but cooler!

There will be no teaching, no performances.... just good old fashioned dancing

in celebration of the milonga!

Following the success of Summer Tango in Nelson I am organising another wonderful opportunity for us to get together - showcasing some of the best scenery in NZ.  Grab another chance to make new tango friends and catch up with old ones under the spell of tango music bought to you by DJs from around NZ under the snow clad Southern Alps in an Alpine Village.

Winter Tango in Hanmer is all about sharing experiences together. Join me for a weekend of dancing, a few dips in the award winning Pools and Spa, eat out at delightful restaurants and cafes, take a walk in the snow up a mountain, play mini golf or just relax by a cosy fire supping mulled wine between milongas in this pristine alpine environment with its grand forests, rivers and spectacular mountains.   If you wanted to do something crazy like bungy jumping or jet boating - the great outdoors awaits.

Dust off your fake furs (or real ones), grab a hat and gloves and join us for a winter weekend away dancing tango amidst snow capped mountains and breathtakingly beautiful scenery.

Ahhhh - I’m purring already!

This weekend will endeavour to be role balanced to ensure you are dancing all weekend. Please try to enrol with a dance partner  - use those connections you have made during Summer Tango and the NZTF to find a partner!  

I have kept the price low at $90 per person for the entire weekend to enable you to add Winter Tango in Hanmer to your annual tango calendar. 

Please like us on facebook and spread the word!
