Workshops & Milonga @ Bognor Buġibba

These workshops are open to all levels.  If you need to choose, then beginners (improvers) may opt for Workshops A & B and more experienced dancers may opt for C & D.  Nevertheless, we encourage you to go for the whole package as the tuition is the finest.

We wanted a different concept this time, reflecting the ease, openness, light-heartedness and informality of Maltese summers.  With this in mind we chose Bognor in Bugibba.  A great location, at the water’s edge.  The 3 course menu price is favourable and it would be a great occasion to invite your relatives and friends to enjoy the setting, the music and the dancing.

Menu sajfTANGO @ Bognor – € 15

Starters:  Parma & melon or Penne pesto with cashnew nuts

ARGENTINE TANGO *IMPROVERS COURSE

tango-01

*This short course is intended for dancers who had previous tango lessons and wish to revisit the basics.  

*This is also intended for those who really want to explore tango 180 deg by learning the ‘other’ role.  Nothing will improve tango faster than learning the mirror moves.  

The course will be taught by Aldo Calleja, assisted by Natalie Debono.

 “Tango is about the road, not the destination” Anon

good few friends asked what was the thing that stuck you most when you were at the Argentine milongas in Buenos Aires?  I answered quickly and surely ‘Simplicity’.  The old-timers, the genuine article milongueros danced simply…and beautifully.  Every step was on time.  So elegant.  Flowing. So connected with ground, partner and music.

We will be revisiting the fundamentals over 3 sessions.  The building blocks of tango.  Those steps that channel the here-and-now slap bang into the present. 

Should you want to join us, let us know at your earliest.

Tango dancing in a great palace, birthday party with a delicious cake, the jazzy voices and, and . . .You and all the co-organizisers again many, many thanks. My husband took some photos.
