Workshops

Tango Cheshire runs regular workshops. These workshops are designed to enhance your connection to the floor, your connection to the music, and your connection to each other. Unless specified, our workshops are suitable for all levels (minimum 6 months experience) and are layered so that everybody develops no matter your experience.

Features of our workshops are:

  • Followers are given equal focus to develop and learn. Followers are not "just there so the leaders can learn a move".
  • In general, we look at topics that we do not teach in our regular classes.
  • Our mixed level workshops are layered so that the material gets more challenging as the workshop progresses. This means everyone will develop and can practice the material that fits their experience level.
  • We do not teach moves and sequences that only work with another person who attended the same workshop. We study ideas, technique, movements, and musicality that can be applied outside of the workshop.

Depending on the number of participants our workshops are held either in Prestbury Village Hall or at our Macclesfield studio.


Developing your Tango to the Next Level

Role Exchange

Our next workshop, Role Exchange, is on Saturday 22nd June 2024.

Join us for two hours of workshop designed to develop your primary dance role through exploration of the opposite roles, to better understand the challenges of the other role, and to jump start your learning of the other role if that interests you.

This workshop is also open to two followers that want to work together or two leaders who want to work together.

How can following improve your leading?

  • Develop your balance skills
  • Improve your ability to pivot and stay in control
  • Learn more about being forward whilst moving backwards
  • Discover what followers need from you for clear invitation

How can leading improve your following?

  • Explore dancing to the music instead of only following your leader
  • Learn how to connect to the floor better
  • Improve your control whilst walking forward
  • Learn more about how you connect your back into the embrace

The workshop includes a natural break for refreshments, and these are included in the price.
