TangoBaltica wants to cheer you up in the dark and ugly time of the year – not really winter, not really spring, grey, wet, cold……. What can make you feeling well?

A Hot Tango Weekend in cold March 2012
with Diana del Valle and Juan Camerlingo in Kekava,  30 March – 1 April

This year we have prepared not only a workshop weekend for you to improve your tango dancing and benefit from Diana and Juan’s excellent didactic  and dancing skills, but we would like to invite you to see our first production of a tango concert with our maestros from Argentina and local dancers & musicians. It is a really Baltic co-production with an exciting team full of spirit and energy performing a concert show lead by Juan Camerlingo.

Interesting Combinations with basic elements – we will work with the three families of basic movements: walk, ‘ochos’ and turns. First with a basic, more technical view and then we will combine them to discover great possibilities of new movements.
