14.45-16.15 hrs – Workshop 2Advanced level. Milonga Lisa and Traspie with single and double beat steps and giros. This workshop is designed for experienced dancers who love the challenge of milonga’s varying rhythms and are looking to hone their technical precision.

16.30-18.00 hrs – Workshop 3 – All levels (for leaders and followers). Tango technique in couples, including posture, walking, embrace, and incorporating giros and planeos. This workshop is designed for beginner to advanced students who recognise the importance of technique in the support and on-going development of their dance. There will also be a strong emphasis on adornments for followers.
