Tango warwick classes: guest teacher Dante Culcuy !

We are very happy to be welcoming Dante Culcuy back as guest teacher for Tango Warwick classes at St Mary's this Friday and the next. His brilliant teaching and dancing has made him much appreciated on previous visits. There is more about him below

For 11th & 18th January there will only be two classes each evening. We will not be catering for new beginners-sorry!
At 7pm there will be a class suitable for improvers level and above. In particular for those who may had just started to come to Luis & Elizabeth's 7.15 class at St Mary's. This can also serve as a time for improving the all important basic techniques. At 8.15 there will be the usual more advanced class restricted to more experienced dancers. 

Newcomers and visiting tango dancers will be made very welcome; and afterwards there is a practice/ social dancing session with DJ Juan de Scarfo, and with some wine , soft drinks, and cake, to round up an enjoyable and instructive evening.

The practica is after the third class but is open and free to those who have done any of the classes (and a nominal charge to others).
