This event has now ended…

BATSfest 2016, the spring weekend Argentine tango festival in Bridport, Dorset, continues and builds on Tango Bridport & Weymouth’s earlier popular and successful Argentine tango events. We’re very pleased to have Veronica Toumanovaand Benjamin Solano join us once again to lead a course of progressive format workshops focusing on tango technique and on the complementary roles of follower and leader. Both Veronica and Benjamin are very highly regarded as Argentine tango teachers – check our website for what people say about them.

 

But it’s not just a weekend festival of workshops, practíca time and the opportunity of private tuition, important though all those are. There are three evening milongas and on the Saturday morning Veronica will be signing her recently published book of essays on Argentine tango, Why Tango – copies will be available in the hall for you to buy. Later on Saturday there’s what promises to be a fascinating lecture by Veronica, Tango, from theory to practice. And to help you relax and to tone tired muscles from all that activity we’ll have specialist therapists present – Cathy Towers offering Zero Balancing therapy and Tanya Grafton offering Russian/Swedish massage. You’ll find more information on our website on the workshops and other events over the weekend. And here’s a link to another video showing Veronica and Benjamin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWzQgw651NI&feature=youtu.be

You’ll find more information on our website on the workshops and other events over the weekend. There’s also pricing details for both individual events and dance and full passes including generous Earlybird booking discounts of 20% and information on cancellation options so that you can book in confidence now and not lose out by waiting. Bridport, right on the stunning Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site location, is a tourist area and holiday accommodation is plentiful – check  http://tangodorset.org.uk/events/batsfest/batsfest-2/ for more information.

We’re privileged to have Benjamin Solano join us as DJ for tomorrow’s milonga, Friday 15 19.30-23.30 at the Town Hall, Bridport, DT6 3LF. Benjamin has been DJing for some five years and is well regarded in his native France and elsewhere in Europe as someone with an extraordinary knowledge and depth of understanding of tango music.

“My role is to ensure that the energy created by the music takes the dancers somewhere emotional” explains Benjamin. “My aim for a successful milonga is simple – has everyone had as good an evening dancing as is possible, has everyone reached this emotional place naturally?”

Because of this experience Benjamin can bring it should be a great evening. Come and judge for yourself.

And please share this with any friends who might be interested in attending. See you there!
