maestros and performers, and the favourites of many. Well known for their pure Tango Salon style

Four intensive workshops that can be taken separately, or all together to maximise learning, immediately applicable to the milongas at the Encuentro! All workshops will be ‘Encuentro friendly’, focusing on close embrace and adapted to busier milongas. Click on the title to reveal more details.
