Details

A one and a half hour workshop introducing Argentine Tango Vals. It is for Argentine Tango dancers who do not yet feel confident with dancing the Vals (waltz) style. Ideal for couples wishing to learn this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant tango version of the waltz, whether you want to try Argentine Tango Vals for the first time, or you wish to boost to your basic musicality and technique.

Ideally you will have had a minimum of 20 weeks of Tango experience, and may have already begun to attend milongas.

It takes two to vals, so this course will be role balanced (equal leaders and followers) as far as possible. If you don't have a partner, please visit my website (the Book Here link) and post a comment to see if anyone is looking for a partner too.

By the end of the workshop my aim is to have you dancing a simple Argentine Tango Vals, using some classic figures, to a traditional vals tune.

How to Join in: Places are limited so click the 'Book Here' button to book your place to guarantee entry.

Please don't attend without booking, and please don't book without attending! Places are only guaranteed on prior payment. If you miss out on this workshop, we will run more later in the year, subject to demand.
