Here is an extract of a review:
Tango and Vivaldi might on the surface appear unlikely bedfellows. But as Amir Giles and Tara Pilbrow smouldered through a selection of baroque flicks in the aptly-titled duet , they looked like a marriage made in heaven…
Perfectly in tune with each other, emotionally and physically, the dancers skilfully sketched the story of an amorous encounter from chance flirtation to melancholy afterglow.
… couldn't help but get under your skin: we didn't know where the dancers ended and the lovers began.

This will be the first of 3 workshops looking at the fundamentals of tango from the follower's perspective. In this class we will be examining linear movements (caminata and linear boleos) and circular movements (ochos, giros and circular boleos) in depth, with exercises specifically designed to provide you with strong technique and increased understanding of the follower's role.
