2011 Festival - Final Thoughts

The 2011 Sydney Tango Salon Festival is over!! Thank you to our wonderful Argentine maestros for their inspiring teaching skills and amazing tango performances – Javier Rodriguez y Andrea Misse, Fabian Peralta y Lorena Ermocida, Sebastian Misse y Andrea Reyero, and Joaquin Amenabar.

Relive the magic memories with our Festival Performance videos and Milonga photographs now on our website.

Videos of the Maestro performances can be viewed at our Video Gallery here. These are professional videos taken by Alex of Crown Thirteen Media Group and allow us to revive our awe at these breathtaking performances.

Take a look at published photographs by our own official Festival cameraman Vincenzo Rajo in our website gallery. You will probably find photos of yourself and friends to relive the fantastic milonga evenings we enjoyed with all our friends from around Australia, New Zealand, United States, Asia Pacific and Europe.
