Workshops with Sara Grdan & Ivan Terrazzas

As instructors, Sara & Ivan have developed a modern systemic approach to teaching traditional tango. Their goal as teachers is to instill strong fundamentals by emphasizing technique, analytical thinking, logic, naturalness and comfort in both the close and open embrace. We are excited to have them in LA for an intensive 2 day progressive workshop series on December 2-3 (Sat/Sun). The workshops are progressive to give an in-depth study of connection, movement and energy management. Learn more...

Tango 101 Intensive Workshop

Something about this 19th-century immigrant dance seems to flip people's worlds upside-down; the beauty of improvising one of the world’s most complex dances with another human being is a beautiful and extraordinary experience that has earned its reputation for being notoriously addictive.

TANGO 101 INTENSIVE WORKSHOP:

In this workshop you will learn the essentials to get started leading, following and connecting to the music and your partner. It's a summary of the first 2 months of the Tango 100 curriculum for anyone who's never danced Tango before, but also for the experienced Tango dancer to go back and clean up their basics.
