TECHNIQUE!

We'll be dedicating the month of July to Technique.

Becoming proficient in tango takes more than simply racking up the miles on the dance floor. To feel confident, free and expressive as a partner, we first need to feel sure in ourselves.

Strong technique opens the door to greater control, creativity and ultimately connection with our partner and the music.

No partner needed. But please contact us to pre-book your place.
