Tango Techniques 1 - Thursdays

Great Tango dancing is a conversation between like minded partners, communicating with their dance skills and emotions in the midst of the timeless Argentine Tango music.
As Martha Graham said: "Movement Never Lies". Skilled dancers know this at the end of the first song in the tanda.
Dance skills translate to a good connection with your partner which can be very exciting and rewarding.
Sign up for Tango Techniques 1 to develop your dance skills and excite your next dance partner.

Tango Techniques 1 will start up again on Thursday January 11th 2018 from 6pm until 7:00pm for four consecutive weeks.
