Workshops/events

We are very lucky to have some excellent visiting tango dancers and teachers to accompany me in running workshops.

We are also lucky enough to have ERIC JORISSEN from El Corte in Nijmegen, The Netherlands comes to our community each year :) a truly fabulous teacher.  Autumn seems to be his time :)

Bennie Bartels, from the Netherlands brings all his dance experience and amazing body work for us to grow from and he usually gets to us twice a year. This allows us to gradually build up our ‘Tango Body’. Of course we work at this all year around but the experience with Bennie allows his unique and very experienced input to bring even more body awareness and development.

Komala and Stefan, from The Netherlands, also working in El Corte, come now in May to our community :) lucky us :) :)

We have had other teachers too who have offered us great input over the years – Siobhan Richards, who although lives in The Netherlands, was a regular visitor to our community, helping us develop musically and technically, who is now aiming to take on full time employment and can no longer get to us. Haydyn Brown, from Chippenham, who was with us regularly for the Friday Night Classes from 2009, Attilla Ting, from Tango Cheshire, who has now moved to Cambridgeshire, Dirk from Germany with the Feldenkrais work, Marc from The Netherlands, Korey, from the USA, Anna from Leeds, Sabra from Houston, USA, Sophie from France, living in Spain
