Thrilled to be getting some recognition for my sister Karen and myself for restoring tango teas to the Waldorf after
a hiatus of several years. The hotel started these in 1910, but needed our dancing school expertise to revive them after they were dropped, in the mistaken belief they could no longer be profitable. Now the tea dances are a sell-out, and I am so proud of the tribute being paid to our small contribution to a century of tango in London by the BBC's One Show on May 27.
I hope tonight's show will inspire all of you to come along to these teas, which feature all the favourite ballroom and Latin steps as well as some wonderful tango displays. And soon we will be starting classes in Argentine Tango - the real thing, with all its passion and excitement - at Simply Dancing Partners....come along!
