STS Festival
2012 Festival - Final Thoughts

Sydney Tango Salon Festival 2012 was filled with great workshops, amazing tango performances, 8 days and nights with inspiring teaching skills and wonderful milonga evenings enjoyed with all our friends from around Australia, New Zealand, Asia Pacific and USA.

How can we thank our incredible Argentine Maestros who came for the 2012 Festival and made it such a truly memorable experience. Their energy, their divine dancing, their amazing generosity  in sharing their technique, their knowledge, their passion for traditional Argentine Tango with us in workshops and lessons throughout the Festival. We salute you and celebrate the legacy you have left for us to inspire us to continue our personal tango journey - Roberto Herrera y Lorena Goldestein, 'Pancho' Martinez Pey y Lorena Ermocida, and the fabulous Misse brothers, Sebastian Misse y Andrea Reyero and Gabriel Misse y Analia Centurion. We salute you and thank you for the gift of your teaching and presence.

View these great Festival Performance videos and relive many magic memories. Videos of the Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Monday nights can be accessedat our Video Gallery here. Videos of the Remembrance Milonga will be forwarded shortly.

These are professional videos taken by Anthony Miller of Tango Spirit and edited by Alex of Crown Thirteen Media Group and allow us to review and remember these breathtaking performances
