We're absolutely delighted that Jenny & Ricardo will once again be on our teaching staff this weekend. This fabulous couple are regulars at our Weekends, teaching and performing - and they always give us a stunning show.
This is what they have to say about Tango:They love tango - its music, its song, and its dance, particularly it's dance. It's wonderful, social, creative, intimate, playful, serious dance.
We love the moment of surrender in the arms of your partner, the feeling of losing yourself and yet finding yourself at one with the music, at one with your partner, at one with yourself. We are proud to be part of the tango community: a rich culture steeped in history, which is still of relevance today.
We continually develop our dance, practicing and also still taking classes, and we have been really fortunate over the years to have been able to learn from some really wonderful maestros**.
We teach and dance tango salon .. tango for the dance floor. Each tango we dance is moved and inspired by the music and the subtle yet powerful conversation within the embrace.
