5 Fabulous Workshops with KARINA COLMEIRO on Saturday/Sunday 3rd & 4th August
Karina’s secrets to develop an understanding of your own body movement to effortlessly dance any style and form of tango!!

These workshops are a unique opportunity to focus on developing this awareness, to maintain a proper posture and use gravity, its axis and the proper use of legs, feet, hips and torso to dance in an easy and natural way.  Learn concepts and techniques you can apply to different forms of movement (including circular and linear situations) and to different styles and forms of individual tango connections.
