Although this is an event designed and focused on the lady’s role in Tango we have created a special space for leaders to work on leadership concepts and technique – this will be a unique opportunity to better experiment and focus on what the lady need in Tango. Santiago and David will take over this part. Ladies who are interested in leading are of course welcome.
