Tango is an invitation to enter into a relationship through the body - with a partner and with yourself. In tango, it is essential to listen, meet others through movement and be available for exchange. Mica and Manuco will offer us tango tools to be able to bond, dance and have fun. Join us with a partner or by yourself - no experience required!
