EVENT ORGANISER

Alex Frankpitt

Hi, I'm part of the tango community in the beautiful coastal town of Tauranga, in the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand. We are always open to helping organise workshops with visiting teachers, events and promoting tango to the wider community. I also organise special themed Milongas with Brenda Donald throughout the year.
