General Information about Workshops

Workshop are open level with something for all, whether advanced dancer or in the early stages of tango learning. As those who have taken workshops with Rodrigo & Agustina will already know, the maestros are gifted teachers who work with participants at their individual levels.  

Participants are encouraged to arrange to attend the workshops with a partner of their choosing as many people choose not to rotate. We will do our best to ensure even numbers of leaders and followers, but we cannot guarantee this.  We welcome bookings in advance (particularly if you are booking without a partner).

An event pass costs $180 and includes entry to all five Melbourne workshops plus our Marvellous Margarita Milonga des Flores featuring performance from Rodrigo & Agustina which will be held on the evening of Saturday 9 November (which would otherwise cost $40 at the door or $35 if booked and paid for in advance).

The cost of attending any single workshop is $40 or if more than one workshop is attended, the cost reduces to $35 per workshop.

ABOUT RODRIGO AND AGUSTINA

Rodrigo and Agustina are one of the youngest tango couples to be invited to the most important Tango Festivals. They have both danced Tango since they were children. Luckily, they got the Tango will from the oldest milongueros. In a fresh dance full of musicality, creative movements and exceptional connection, you will never stop watching purest tango from the past combined with the evolution of the technique and the expression of the lovely intimacy. Their shows and classes have the perfect percentage of organic innovation, aesthetic and a very rooted compromise with the Tango tradition, that gives them a personal style, so easy to recognise from the amateur eye as for the most experienced one. In addition to exhibiting regularly in their home country Argentina, they have performed at the most important events in Asia, Oceania and Europe, beside Argentina. Rodrigo & Agustina are internationally known for their quality of movement, their musical interpretation and their generous personalities.
