******WORKSHOP DETAILS******
While the focus of the weekend is of course on Social Dancing, we have 3 great workshops available on Saturday (all scheduled outside of Milonga time)
You don’t need a partner to book but workshops will be gender balanced. Please also make sure you satisfy the experience level for the workshops.

Workshop 1: Sat Oct 31 (11.00-12.00) The Art of dancing Tango in a Small Space Bärbel Rücker
For all levels except beginner (suitable for improver, intermediate, intermediate/advanced and advanced levels)
This 1 hour workshop is designed for everyone who has taken their first tango steps (even a long time ago), and wants to feel more comfortable on a crowded dance floor.
We will focus on our awareness, quality of dancing and adjusting the repertoire to a small space. Please bring thick socks or gym shoes! You don’t need a partner.
Bärbel has danced tango for 17 years and taught it for 15. Her approach is clear and direct.

Workshop 2: Sat Oct 31 (17.15-18.30) Vals Rhythm – Taking your Vals to the next level Guillermo Torrens & Alexandra Wood
Minimum level Intermediate (suitable for intermediate, intermediate/advanced and advanced levels)
This 1 hour 15 minute workshop will help to develop your Vals repertoire and confidence. It recognises that many very competent Tango dancers struggle with Vals Rhythm. Guillermo and Alexandra will soon have you confidently twirling and interpreting this beautiful rhythm with some clear technique, elegant patterns and of course great musicality.

Workshop 3: Sat Oct 31 (18.45-20.00) Beautiful Voleos and Stylish Sacadas for leaders AND follows to standout on the Busy Dancefloor Guillermo Torrens & Alexandra Wood
Minimum level Intermediate (suitable for intermediate, intermediate/advanced and advanced levels)
In this 1 hour 15 minute workshop we will explore these exciting and fun patterns which will add variety to your walk and dancing. They can look and feel fantastic but only if you execute them properly.
Find out how to execute them stylishly and with the best technique to ensure you look good and dance safely in crowded Milongas.
