An Enchanting Full Moon Tango-Weekend
In Historic Brandon, Vermont



Just want to thank you again for organizing this wonderful weekend in Vermont, we enjoyed every minute. We are already looking forward to doing it again next year! N. - Montreal

What a nice event this was - so many positive comments
from everyone. Wish we could have spent more time
there - hopefully, next year! M. - Vermont

The event was excellent and that was the opinion of all participants from the Concord MA tango class. Our only suggestion so far would be to make it semi-annual - as we have mentioned to you already. Thank you once again for organizing it and doing such a great job at that! T. - Massachusetts

I was impressed with how happy everyone was. I think that everyone clearly appreciates the insightful and fun way you have in approaching tango, I sense it and that makes the class so rewarding. H. - Vermont

It was perfect, absolutely perfect. The danses, the lessons, the wine (many thanks to you), le Inn, the meals, the program, the teachers. The bandoneon also. I hope I'll be with you again next year. L. - Montreal

What a wonderful, enchanting, beautiful weekend! G. - New York City

Thank you for a great weekend. The instruction was excellent and the other participants positive and compatible. The wine was good. The music was good. The weather could have been cooler, but, so what. So, thank you again.
And, sign us up for next year with the same room!! A. - New York City

What a weekend. A complete success! Thank you for the fun and I will certainly spread the word for next year’s event. M. - Boston

Congratulations again on a wonderful and successful tango weekend! You have been a catalyst for much “simpatico” as well as learning & deeper comprehension of tango dancing. J. - Vermont

I hope you know how significant your event was for each of the participants.
I heard from a number of people about how much they were enjoying it. I am
still floating. I was impressed with the graciousness and sincerity of so many of the people I met.. I am very very grateful to them and only wish I could thank them.It was wonderful to dance with people so clear in their intention. Andrew of LaPuerta Wines was wonderful. I loved watching you dance with Tregea, it is always a treat to see how well you both enjoy dancing together. I found Daniel's class to be very rich and I thought it was the necessary challenge for dancers to not get stuck in easy patterns. I definitely will make it to the next gathering. Thank you for giving us so generously an opportunity to find something meaningful in Tango. H. - Vermont

Thanks, again, for a great weekend in Vermont. You were a most gracious host. Besides the fact I totally appreciated the opportunity to get out of the city, I had a great time and met some lovely people. I hope it was successful for you too and you will do it again, as you plan. R. - New York City
