Matthew Civil (Wellington) and I are going to be teaching a series of workshops in Golden Bay 1 - 3 May. We thought it would be really fun to teach together as we both have a special passion for improvising within the structure of good technique. So please come along and check us out! Thanks Ute for putting all this together. Is going to be a great weekend and a really good tune up for Cecilia and NZ Tango Fest in June. Basically the more we can dance right now the better! Please register with Ute on firstname.lastname@example.org
