Synergy Summer Holiday Schedule

Our December 2023–January 2024 scheduled events are tabled below.

In consultation with the committee, we have elected for Tango Synergy to take a medium-sized break from hosting our regular events over the Christmas and New Years holiday period. A large-sized thank you to all the committee for hosting this year of events. The effort and creativity you have poured into this years events have been astounding.

An extra shot of thank yous to the volunteers DJs and the wonderful music provided to us this year. Thank you very matcha for the volunteers who contributed to the ongoing running of this year’s weekly milongas and practicas.

The last Synergy event of 2023 is our practica on Sunday 17 December. We will celebrate the year with food and music by DJ Juan.

When we resume in January 2024, the practicas will occur fortnightly on Sunday 14 Jan, Sunday 28 January and Sunday 11 Feb at Tramsheds. From Sunday 11 February we will return to running practicas every Sunday at Tramsheds.

Synergy’s weekly milongas will resume from Wednesday 17 January.

Dear members and guests, I wish you all a very fine Christmas and New Years with your friends and families.
