La Tangueria

puro tango argentino since 1996

Programme summer 2024

GaetanThere will be 5 workshops on Wednesdays to dive  deeper into different facets of tango itself, followed by 5 workshops of neotango, vals and milonga, to further develop other dance skills and musicalities as well. To boost your tango, we recommend taking the series, but each class can also be taken separately.
For absolute beginners and those who want to review the basics, 3 discovery workshops are offered on Wednesdays, which can be taken separately or together.
For advanced dancers who want an extra challenge, we offer a one-off intensive tango escenario workshop on Tuesday 27/8. Work will be done on lifts, poses, complex and flashy figures for performances. Advanced dancers from other disciplines (salsa, bachata, contemporary…) can also participate in this workshop.
