Details

BATSfest, the spring weekend Argentine tango festival in Bridport, continues and builds on Tango Bridport & Weymouth’s earlier popular and successful Argentine tango events. We’re very pleased to have Veronica Toumanova and Benjamin Solano join us once again to lead a course of progressive format workshops focusing on tango technique and on the complementary roles of follower and leader. Both Veronica and Benjamin are very highly regarded as Argentine tango teachers – check out our website what people say about them.

But it’s not just a weekend festival of workshops, practíca time and the opportunity of private tuition, important though all those are. There are three evening milongas and on the Saturday morning Veronica will be signing her recently published book of essays on Argentine tango, Why Tango – copies will be available in the hall for you to buy. Later on Saturday there’s what promises to be a fascinating lecture by Veronica, Tango, from theory to practice. And to help you relax and to tone tired muscles from all that activity we’ll have specialist therapists present – Cathy Towers offering Zero Balancing therapy and Tanya Grafton offering Russian/Swedish massage. You’ll find more information on our website on the workshops and other events over the weekend.

Earlybird booking for the festival will save you 20% but closes shortly. Because there's also generous cancellation options you can book now without risk and join all the others coming along - don't lose out by waiting!
