International Summer Retreat: Both role Tango 20-25 july 2020

The course is canceled due to the pandemic.

Welcome to an international tango summer retreat lead by Brigitta Winkler (Berlin/New York) and Malin Backström (Stockholm).

This is a retreat for tango dancers who dance both roles. The level will be medium/advanced, but you don't need to be equally experienced in both roles. The course will be held in English.

Every day starts with a Body/Mind morning session, followed by an explorational-conceptual tango class. In the afternoon, there will be a more ”strictly tango"-class. Every evening ends with a practica, and one evening we have an open milonga. 

Brigitta Winkler and Malin Backström are both experienced and passionate teachers, and have been exploring and teaching tango for many years.

Besides dancing, you can enjoy our good food and our beautiful surroundings – we have a castle on the property, a sauna by the lake and nature paths for walking.
