We are delighted to have our friends from Tampa returning to Gainesville for another set of workshops to help you improve your Argentine Tango. Please join us and feel free to invite your friends!


11:00pm – 12:30pm: Tango – Weight Changes and Playing with the beat
In this workshop we will focus on traditional steps practicing changes of weight while playing with the beat. This workshop will be used as a building block for the next two workshops.
Level: All Levels

12:30pm – 2:00pm: Tango Canyengue
In this workshop we will focus on “Cortes & Quebradas” (dissociation of upper & lower body with sharp moves). Tango Canyengue uses all traditional steps of traditional tango bringing musicality and playfulness to the steps. Tango Canyengue is a lot of fun!

Note: We will not teach the canyengue style, but use its musicality as a tool for fun steps that can be used in tango and in milonga.
Level: All Levels

2:00pm – 3:30pm: Milonga Lisa & Traspie
This class will focus on the basics of Milonga Lisa & Milonga Traspie. Whether you are a new or experienced Milonga dancer, you will learn how to play with the rhythm variations of the Milonga music.
Level: All Levels

NOTE: All of the workshops are inter-related. The steps, concepts and technique of each workshop are building blocks for the following one eventually applying all of what was learned to the rhythm of Milonga.

1 workshop: $20
2 workshops: $35
3 workshops: $50 ($45 for students with valid ID)

Pre-registration is encouraged!
