Tango discovery workshops tango cartoon discovery

If you want to discover tango in a nutshell, you can participate in one or more of our compact workshops. The programme of these Discovery sessions is each time different, as the teachers approach the basics of tango from different angles.

No tango experience is required to participate, but also those who already know some of the basics will discover in each edition new elements of the tango vocabulary. Our Discovery workshops are thus a valid alternative to learn tango also for those who don’t have the possibility to take part in a regular weekly class.
They are proposed in 2 x 90 minutes, over 1 or 2 days.
We propose a Discovery workshops at a regular basis.

Next dates of Discovery workshops La Tangueria:
SUNDAY 22/5  17:00>19:00
Price: 25€ pp for 120 min.
> Participants of the discovery workshop will be able to join one of the level 1 courses afterwards, on Tuesday or Sunday.
Because a minimum of 6 couples is required for the workshop to take place, and the maximum number of places is limited to 12, registration is required through the registration form.NB: Next date: 25/9, same hours.
