14-16 Feb 2020 | Tango Valentine's Retreat at Temenos

Updated: Feb 27, 2020

“The tango awaits you”

Valentine’s day is a time to connect with someone you love! This unique workshop designed by tango teacher Rachael Glaser invites you to experience the beauty of a mindful connection with both your partner and the earth that energises the dance. While learning the secrets of leading and following, you will experience the playful joy of a non-verbal language- a way to communicate with only music and movement. This weekend is suitable for absolute beginners and no previous dance experience is needed (2 left footers included!) Rachael’s passion is to share the complex and subtle beauty of the Argentine tango - the way that it awakens us to a sensual communication with our dance partner. The weekend is co- facilitated with fellow dancer Lizelle Steyn. The workshop is offered in a small group format with dancers working in pairs. Please bring a partner to join you on your tango journey. We will be working in a small intimate space so numbers are limited.

About the teacher:

Rachael Glaser has been dancing tango since 2001 and lived in Buenos Aires over two years where she studied the dance intensively with some of the world's best teachers. She teaches the tango as a form of meditation, creative fun and a connection between people.
