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).

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

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

This year, we are offering a masterclass for professional and advanced level couples.
Topic: Different Techniques for Different Situations.
Time: 6 – 8pm
Date: Tuesday 5 November (Cup Day)
Venue: 12 Surrey Road South Yarra

Cost: $90 per couple.  The number of participants in this class will be capped so that Rodrigo and Agustina can work personally with each couple. Enrolment in this class must be booked in couples and paid for in advance

We are now taking bookings for private lessons. The cost of a private lesson with either Rodrigo or Agustina is $165 per hour and must be paid in advance before a booking will be treated as confirmed. Private lessons are being scheduled for all the weekdays of the week from Monday 3 November (including Cup Day) to Friday 7 November and also on Monday 10 November. Lessons will take place at 12 Surrey Road South Yarra.

We had many disappointed people last year who missed out as available times for private lessons booked out.  We suggest that if you are interested in private lessons, you make contact with us to secure your place as soon as possible

Our annual Marvellous Margarita Memorial Milonga de las Flores will be held on Saturday 9 November 2019 at an exciting new venue. This night will feature a performance from Rodrigo & Agustina.  Sydney based DJ Alex will be in charge of the playlist.
