Milonga Workshops with Angel Garcia Clemente


The purpose of progressive classes is to provide dancers an opportunity to acquire skills over a period of two weeks instead of an intensive weekend. While the emphasis of these workshops will be on dancing milonga, the vocabulary and skills learnt in these workshops can be easily used for other musical genres - tango and vals.
