Please, join our FREE workshops to learn them both from the beginning or improve your dancing and simply enjoy! Workshops on Saturday during Brunch. No need to pre-register for the workshops.
Chacarera is one of the most popular Argentinian folklore dances. Flirty, and full of joy and fun.
The workshop is suitable for any level:
Join us, and the next time you hear the first sounds of chacarera at milongas/festivals, you won't be able to stay in your chair!
Zamba is one of the most romantic and profound dances in Argentinian folklore. It's a dance that you dance from your heart, not your feet.
