 All Levels - Minimum Level: Improver (at least 2-6 months regular tango dancing) This 1 hour workshop is designed for everyone who has taken their first tango steps (even a long time ago). Specific focus is on universal musicality, technique and comfort for Social Dancing together. Whilst concepts will be practised via giros and ochos, the emphasis is on the quality of movement, posture and embrace rather than the figure. Please bring thick socks or gym shoes!

 Workshop 2 (Sat Oct 29: 19.30 - 20.30) Osvaldo Pugliese: The Man, his Music and Interpreting him as a Dancer (Michael Lavocah)

 Minimum level: Any (suitable for beginner, improver, intermediate, intermediate/advanced and advanced levels)  The music of Osvaldo Pugliese is the most intense and passionate of all. In this workshop you'll learn about the development of the Pugliese sound and the musicians who created it, and what it all means for the dancer. The music will be presented in the context of Pugliese’s extraordinary journey as an orchestra leader which leads from the cells of South American’s most notorious political prison to the stage of its grandest opera house, illustrated with rare archive photographs. Workshop participants will also be able to purchase Michael's new book on Pugliese at big discount.
