Dear Tango Ladies,

Mark your calendar and talk to Daniela to reserve a spot for a wonderful workshop that will help you take your dancing to a higher level.

As we all know, what we are able to feel/express while dancing is strongly connected with our technique level. With this in mind, Daniela has put together a series of exercises targeting posture and walking to improve presence and attitude, and targeting the complex foot-ankle to allow you the most beautiful, sexy embellishments.
