The session is open to everyone of any skill level. Without prejudice of established dancing roles and away from the mainstream idea of what tango should be, it is a tango for all.

We kindly ask you to register to the event due to the limited number of participants. In the registration email please mention your name and how many people you register. It is possible to come without a dance partner.
