Beginners Argentine Tango

These two 1.5 hour workshops are designed for those of you who have not danced the Argentine Tango before, or would like a refresher of the embrace and some basic steps. Not only will you be able to listen to the delights of the Tango Quartet, on the Sunday afternoon, but you will be able to get up with your Partner and experience this passionate dance.
During the first workshop we will focus on the Tango Vals (Waltz), introducing you to the close embrace and walking. This is a progressive dance, moving around the floor in an anti-clockwise direction. The second workshop will focus on the Argentine Tango: moving together in your own small space.
