Date claimers and recently added events:


Workshop with Chris & Helena - Saturday 11 December 2021

Time: 4.30-6.00pm

Cost: $20

Venue: Masonic Hall, 211 Main Rd Maroochydore

Topic: “Connection - it’s not just about you or the steps”

You most likely learned some moves at your group/private lessons then tried it with a stranger at a Milonga. How had it turned out for you? Did he/she understand your intention? Were you feeling comfortable with him/her? One of the most rewarding and attractive things about tango is the experience of connecting with a new partner. It is about the sensation of physical unity with another person which also elicits mutual concentration and emotional warmth. Chris & Helena can help you explore how to improve your connection with whoever you are dancing.
