On August 27-29, 2010, tango performer & teacher Darren Lees returns to Sacramento for a weekend of tango workshops!

Darren is a beautiful dancer who excels at breaking down complex steps and concepts into their simplest elements. Darren focuses on technique in every part of his teaching, so that by the end of class students are not just able to lead or follow a new step; they are able to lead or follow it well. He's also excellent at handling the logistics of the class, making sure that everyone gets to dance frequently if the gender balance is off.

Darren will be teaching four workshops (assisted by Donna Williams, studio owner of Tango by the River) over the course of three days, Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, August 27, 28, & 29:

Friday, Aug. 27, 6:00-7:30 p.m. -- Dynamic Giros (turns) for the Social dance floor, for Tango & Vals -- With an emphasis on technique and musicality.

Saturday, Aug. 28, 2:00-3:30 -- Volcada Variations -- A dynamic new way to experience the Volcada for the social dance floor. Including back and side volcadas! You won't want to miss this class!

Sunday, Aug. 29, 2:00-3:30 -- MILONGA MAGIC!

Cost is $20 per workshop, or two for $35, three for $45 or ALL FOUR FOR $50 -- THE BEST DEAL!!!
