learn the language of tango

Are you ready to decrypt the DNA of Tango - the genetic code that gives rise to all the possibilities of 2 bodies and 4 legs? Prepare to exercise your analytical brain! In these 4 workshops you will learn the lexicon and structure of tango figures which will enable you to remember new combinations better and invent original ideas as you dance or practice.
