Improvisation Workshop Topics


Every six months, our Improvisation Workshop covers the entire Tango Lexicon.

In each workshop we review Basic Technique for each movement, but our emphasis is on showing the System of Variations and Exploring the Dynamic Range, including FAST (for Milonga and Contemporary Music), and open and close embrace.
