Wednesday Workshops with Albero & Fernanda

Published: March 15, 2018 By Varro Creative in Annoucements

We are very excited to see you all soon! We are going to stay in Calgary for 6 weeks and will offer many different classes in different places.
On Wednesdays, we are going to offer workshops for 6 weeks, specifically for couples. The workshops will be held at the Beso de Tango studio (in Kelvin Grove), which is best suited to small groups.
Please let us know if you have interest in the Wednesday workshops as soon as possible so we can book your spot.
Warm regards,
Alberto and Fernanda


Dance Philosophy

With a good foundation and strong understanding of the fundamentals, it is easier to absorb, retain, grow and understand new steps and especially to be able to improvise after our program. We have been fortunate to be part of the growth and development of the Calgary tango community. Join us and take your learning to the next level.
