Christmas Milongas and Christmas prices
I haven't been to all the Christmas milongas I would like to because of this - the tango budget only goes so far.
A member of our family is visiting from the US and she tells us that in the US they just go from one festival to another - no sooner is Thanksgiving over, than it's Christmas, then Valentine's Day, then St Patricks Day, then Easter... and I've probably missed one or two I am wondering if they do milongas for each Festival Day - and if they do, do they put up the door price each time? I hope that Sydney's milongas don't go this way. It is great to have a theme occasionally, but it can be overdone - and it is possibly to price yourself too high for your clients (I'm watching this happen with another activity I do regularly - the price hike has made me cut back to 2 classes a week, from 3).
In the ideal world it would be good if all the milonga organisers saw their end of year milongas as a chance to thank their clients for their custom (as some do) - rather than an opportunity to put up their prices.
Enough of the grumpy old lady... thank you for reading Angelina's Tango Blog! I wish you
a Jolly Christmas, a Happy New Year - and lots and lots of great dancing.
