Weather -permitting, and volunteer floor set-up dependant!

Contact organizer Margaret to help with making  waterfront tango happen smoothly .

The suggested donation  of $10 from  Milonga Del Puerto participants is intended to cover the work of supplying and maintaining the flooring, the duct tape, storage and transportion, publicity, DJ services, and so forth.

Details of Set-up:  We unload 8 rolls of vinyl at Seaport parking lot and transport them by dolly to the Gazebo foot of Morris St. These are unrolled over  the swept boardwalk  area and duct-taped together. A sound system and banner are also set up. 3 people can do  this in about 20 minutes! Take down is usually has many hands, roll them up, return to parking lot, etc. I store the flooring in my home shed and  load and unload them from there into my car.

Footwear notice: Heel-covers required on  pointy spike heels, as the sharp points may puncture the vinyl. You can order these on line and I will try to have a stash on hand ($2 a pair).

Thank you for your support.

Background: Tangonova began hosting the waterfront milonga in 2011, and  is now one of 3 or 4 social dance groups  using the Gazebo area  (technically known as Tall Ships Quay)  during the summer, via  an application process to Develop Nova Scotia, the provincial company that manages the Hfx waterfront.  The company  does not provide any funding for community dance events on the boardwalk. They kindly provide  and maintain the space and list these activities  on their web site.
