Vals classes/ Diary

TANGO WARWICK CLASSES & PRACTICA WITH Luis Rodriguez & Elizabeth Knock continue at St Mary's, Leamington Spa.
For Fridays 23rd th & 30th, the classes from 7.30 will concentrate on tango vals. Luis & Elizabeth's attention to musicality and to dancing in a way suitable for crowded milongas is especially valuable for this.

The 6.30 class is on basic tango techniques, catering especially for the recent arrivals to tango, but of general importance.

Visiting tangueros, and those who haven't managed to come for the last few years or so will be most welcome to our classes, as well as more regular irregulars. The more advanced classes are by permission of the teachers. Many experienced dancers come for the whole evening, or at least arrive as soon as they can manage to.

The lively practica/ social dance with some nibbles, drinks and wine, will complete a happy, sociable, and instructive evening's tango. Details below. Come along if you can!
Luis & Elizabeth often are available for private, or semi-private, classes on Saturdays. Please contact them via

Lorena y Gaston's workshops on 12th Oct: There is still room for leaders and couples for the workshops, with a waiting list of followers. Leaders especially--please do book soon! ~~~~~~~~~~~~
