Tango Workshops with Eric Jørissen: 19 – 24 October 2014 – MALTA


Eric Jørissen is one of the most popular and inspiring teachers of tango.  He is the founder of El Corte  in Nijmegen (Netherlands). El Corte is regarded by many to be the tango mecca of Europe, and draws a constant stream of international tangueros to its workshops and marathons.  Eric’s creative energy permeates his dance and his teaching.  His workshops are novel, insightful and delightfully fun.

Eric is highly sought after around the world. We are very happy to host his workshops in Malta twice a year.  Eric will be conducting a series of workshops between the 19th and 22nd of October with a special party on Friday the 24th of October 2014.
