This course is suitable for absolute beginners, and improvers up to 6 months experience. Anyone who dances Ballroom, Salsa, Modern Jive etc. and who is wanting a new challenge is welcome to join in.

‘Mastering Tango – The Tango Walk’ – Pinner

This is the first in a series of ‘Mastering tango’ workshops . Each workshop can be taken independently.

Some people believe that the tango walk is a bit boring and that tango is all about figures and ‘moves’. Not so! Creating musicality using rebote, change of weight, and contra tiempo, is part of the fun of the dance.

This is a one and a half hour workshop for improvers to intermediate level, and is ideal for couples wishing to expand their technique and musicality for this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance.

‘Mastering Tango – The Cross’ – Pinner

This workshop continues the series of ‘Mastering tango’ workshops. Each workshop can be taken independently.

The followers cross (or Cruzada) is one of the most commonly used methods for leaders to change their partners weight in a stylish way, and there are many different ways of leading a follower to cross including the parallel basic, cross-step basic, milonguero cross, and in fact leading a cross from any point in a walk.

This one and a half hour workshop is for improvers to intermediate level, and is ideal for couples wishing to expand their technique and musicality for this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance.

‘Mastering Tango – The Ochos and Voleo’ – Pinner

This workshop continues the series of ‘Mastering tango’ workshops. Each workshop can be taken independently.

Ochos and Voleos (Boleos) are some of the most classic movements within Argentine tango. They rely on the followers pivot, and need both a command of balance from the follower, as well as a precise lead from the leader to make them look stylish and elegant.

This one and a half hour workshop is for improvers to intermediate level, and is ideal for couples wishing to expand their technique and musicality for this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance.

I look forward to seeing you soon
