CITA, preparing for the unexpected

Two months before the event I had cautiously booked 20 CITA classes, endlessly weighting the pros and cons of each teacher, asking advices to my argentine friends, scanning the Internet for information, and so on.

It was understood that the reservations were first open to people within groups (mine will be about 30 people), and only then to individuals. Well, due to some mistake, the opposite occurred, and when the representative of our group sent his form to Fabian Salas, it appeared that everything was already full. After a sleepless night of negociations, our representative finally found room for all of us in CITA classes, but... not necessarily the classes we had booked.

I'm relatively lucky, only one of the classes I intented to assist (by Julio Balmaceda & Corina) was replaced by another (by "El Pulpo"), but for some of my team-mates the replacement ratio almost reaches 100%. They'll sure have fun in Buenos Aires: imagine they're beginners and they'll have to learn the professional-level class about high jumps, or leaders assigned to "tecnica para mujer" classes...

Lately realizing that the offer was not matching the demand, Fabian hired three more teachers (Esteban Moreno & Claudia Codega, El Pulpo & Luiza, Guillermina Quiroga), who will give 18 additional classes. It means that, besides the 7 planned levels of classes (beginners, milonga, intermediates, advanced, professionals, thematics, masterclass), there will be an 8th one, without name for the moment. May I suggest "late bird"...
