Workshops and performance! Juan Manuel Acosta and Laisa Souza will be giving two workshops at the Tithe Barn on 30th October, 2016. They will then be performing at the Tango Café afterwards. Please book in advance for the workshops. Booking is not required for the Tango Café, although to help with catering, we do find it useful to have some idea of numbers, so please use the Facebook event to let us know if you are coming if possible.

For these dates, the timings will be 19:30 - 20:30 All Levels and 20:45 - 21:45 Improver Level and above. To cover our costs, we also need to raise our prices slightly for these Tuesdays.
