As the curtains draw on the 2024 Austin Spring Tango Festival, we're filled with immense gratitude for the amazing volunteers who made it all possible! From working in the kitchen to setting up the ballrooms and guiding participants through workshops, your dedication and passion truly made this event shine!
To each and every volunteer who lent a hand: THANK YOU! Your efforts behind the scenes have ensured that every aspect of the ASTF festival ran smoothly, allowing us to create unforgettable moments together.
We're deeply grateful for your selflessness, teamwork, and commitment to spreading the love of tango. Your contributions have made a significant impact, and we couldn't have done it without you!
Here's to the bonds we've formed, the laughter we've shared, and the magic of tango that unites us all.

We’ve got a full weekend of dancing coming up, and we have a secret weapon to keep you on your feet:

We are thrilled to welcome Michelle Wald PT, who is trained in the Aston Kinetics method and also an Austin Tango Community member! Michelle is teaching two free classes on Saturday:

10:30am Tango Prep - Stretch and loosen up excessive tension and get your tango body ready for the lessons of the day.

2:45pm Tango Recovery - Targeted stretches to get yourself ready to glide for the milongas.

Private sessions are available before and after the festival at www.michellewald.com.

We all want a smooth and enjoyable experience at Austin Spring Tango Festival 2024, especially at those packed evening Milongas. Here's the secret: Great floor craft from everyone makes the magic happen!

We've all been there - feeling confident in our own dancing, but maybe a little frustrated by someone else's moves. Even seasoned dancers can forget the finer points of navigating a crowded floor in the moment.

So, let's work together to create an amazing experience for all at our festival. We're asking everyone attending to take a few minutes to refresh their floor craft skills. A quick reminder can make a big difference in keeping the dance floor moving.

We recommend these 3 videos and 1 blog as helpful resources. They are for everyone, no matter your experience level. If one doesn't quite resonate with you, maybe the next one will.

Together, let's make ASTF 2024 a showcase of fantastic floor craft!

Floor Craft
From LA Tango Academy, an excellent blog - https://bit.ly/3Pd1yGy
From Koos de Wit, a quick video - https://bit.ly/49ZnVaa
From Hoy Milonga, an amusing reminder on moderating high boleos when in a crowd - https://bit.ly/4c4uWZf
From Murat Erdemsel, an entertaining tutorial- https://bit.ly/3P8dg4T
