Burley Springtime Milonga & Workshop 2018

Burley Springtime Milonga & Workshop 2018

Burley Springtime Milonga & Workshop [10/03/2018]For the first time I will be meeting the tango scene of the New Forest as Tango DJ & Teacher. On Saturday 10th March 2018 I have the honour to be teaching a 90 minute tango workshop before DJ’ing the Burley Springtime Milonga. 

In December 2014 I was enjoying the Burley Tango Festive SPECIAL – Milonga ONE where my partner Paul Strudwick was in charge of the music. My video from that day.

Burley Springtime Milonga Event

A magical Burley Tango Event in the beautiful New Forest, welcomes the first days of spring with a Tango Workshop, a Matinee milonga followed by an Evening Session.

The Workshop ‘Tweaking Your Tango’

I will demystify Grounding, Balance & Dynamics to really put you in control of your dance as a leader and follower.

Please bring thick socks as well as your dancing shoes.

It is not necessary to sign up with a partner. We are going to move alone and with changing partners, also changing roles in order to understand the movement better.

The Milongas

The music will be traditional and spans from 1920s up to 1950s.

Your DJs will be Bärbel Rücker & Brian Chivers.
