Weekend con el Maestro
14:00 Sat, 22 Oct 2016 (Europe/London)
21:30 Sun, 23 Oct 2016 (Europe/London)
We are proud to present this special weekend with Andrés, dear friend and Maestro, a much loved and respected figure in Buenos Aires and worldwide, who has for over 25 years worked tirelessly to maintain the authentic Tango de Salón of his home city. Rarely exported, hardly ever seen outside of the barrios of BA, Tanguito upholds this purest form of social dance, the classic lineage of Villa Urquiza style, absorbed at source from the great milongueros in the traditional clubs; this is the style of Portalea, Finito, El Chino Perico, legendary dancers and the makers of the Tango we know today.
Andrés will be assisted throughout the weekend by Carole Bramley – Carole has been training with Tanguito for over 12 years, she has frequently taught classes with him, they have worked together in numerous international events and she has performed on the same bill in Buenos Aires, in leading milongas Club Sin Rumbo, Salón Canning, Sunderland and Porteño y Bailarin.
Classes will be taught in fluent English and are suitable for intermediate to advanced levels. Please ask for guidance regarding level and technical content.
