Argentine Tango Weekend March 5th-6th 2016 - registration




During the weekend of 5th to 6th of March 2016 in Turku there is a rare chance to work with an Argentinian tango maestro, Carlos Rodriguez. No matter your level or skills, this weekend is for you!

Recommendations: WS 1 is especially recommended for beginners to form a good basis for leading and following. All lessons WS 1-3 will greatly benefit intermediate dancers and improvers. WS 4 is intended for more experienced dancers, but you can also include this lesson to a whole-weekend package of WS 1-4.

We will aim for a leader-follower balance but you can nevertheless enroll also without a partner. The teaching language is English (Finnish guidance offered if needed).
