The Secrets of Tango – June 2017

The Secrets of Tango – June 2017

Tango Synergy is very excited to announce that we will be working with local teachers during the month of June to bring to you a series of workshops.

The workshops will cover fundamental technique, open discussions about tango, etiquette, history, and various orchestras and how to recognise them.

This initiative is a trial for June and if successful will be carried through to the end of the winter season.

Tango Synergy is happy to offer this opportunity to our members and guests and hope that the outcome will be a very positive one for everyone.

 

 

Check out who is visiting us on Sundays this June!
