The inaugural Sydney Tango Salon Festival is over!! The last maestro couple have left our shores today, but there are many magic moments to remember until next October 2011!

We cannot express our wonder and gratitude at the performances and teaching skills of our three Argentine maestro couples - Javier Rodriguez y Andrea Misse, Gabriel Misse y Natalia Hills, Andres Laza Moreno y Isabel Acuna. We salute them and thank them for bringing such mastery and magic to our first Festival. Their presence in Australia has inspired and delighted us and we shall treasure their time with us until we meet again!

As promised, we have published photographs by our terrific cameraman Vincenzo Rajo in our website gallery. Videos of the Maestro performances can be viewed at our Video Gallery here. Hopefully, these will help sustain our memories of the wonderful milonga evenings we enjoyed together with our Maestros and all our friends from around Australia, New Zealand, Asia Pacific and Europe.

Once more, we would like to thank all the Australian and Asian tango school principals who supported and became part of our Festival community for 6 days and nights of inspiring workshops and heart-stopping performances. Their invaluable help assisting in workshops, lunchtime milongas and free beginners lessons at the Bondi Beach Pavilion helped make this first Festival of Tango Salon a truly community event.

Special thank you to our friends from Asia who gave such beautiful performances at our International Milonga - Leonel y Florencia, Raymond y Lily, Gustavo y Catarina. We were all thrilled by your dancing and wonderful bon homie. May we meet again soon at some of the wonderful festivals coming up over the next 8 months throughout Asia.

Another special thank you to Teresa Boreham of Flowers by Teresa, who made our milonga tables such a visual delight. And to Andrea & Khalid of Morena Dancewear who helped publicise our Festival to the wider dance community.

And the biggest thank you of all to the fabulous tangueros and tangueras who came to the STS Festival and made it such an incredible 6 days and nights - it is to you we owe the largest debt of gratitude, for your support and the gift of your friendship. We shall not disappoint you next October, when we look forward to meeting and dancing with you all again.
