It's Good to Torque Workshop
with Bill & Ann Froud
Saturday 15th June
This workshop will allow you to develop your dance technique and better understand how you physically control the lead and follow. With detailed focus on how the use of your frame causes smoothness or harshness within the dance, and how the frame creates torque in the lead that allow both dancers to get the most from the dance and achieve that beautifully connected tango feel.
This workshop is of benefit to every student of tango, it will round Intermediates, develop improvers and be a real eye opener to all who attend.
You are welcome to bring a camera along, as it will be a workshop that you will never want to forget... above all you will have a great time.
To allow for the individual attention that Bill and Ann are renowned for in their workshops, this workshop has very limited availability.
To ensure you don't miss out please call Essie and confirm your space. This is not an 'open' workshop. Please do not attend unless you have confirmed that a space is available for you.
The cost of the workshop is £20

This month our regular social milonga coincides with our tango workshop with Bill & Ann Froud. If you haven't experienced a milonga at Tango Stoke yet, this would be a great time to remedy that..
With a warm friendly atmosphere to dance in, and an imaginative blend of traditional music presented in tanda/cortina format, Tango Stoke's monthly social milongas are a way to press the pause button on life and escape for a few hours.
At this milonga there will be a heavy emphasis on traditional music (95%+).

We will also be having our ever popular 'sharing table', there is certainly no obligation, but if you wish to bring along something you've cooked, or a packet of snacky type things it is always greatly appreciated.
There is no licensed bar, but fresh teas and coffee are available. You are also welcome to bring your own drinks, soft or alcoholic.
This workshop is part of a weekend of tango in our area. With this milonga to midnight after Saturday's workshop with Bill & Ann Froud, as well as a canyengue workshop and tea dance on Sunday with Tango Stafford.
Tango Stoke run weekly Argentine Tango classes in Barlaston on a Tuesday evening. The club is based on the dojo ethos used in many martial arts; we promote group learning in an enquiring environment.
We believe that by working together to refine technique, movement and self-awareness we develop the solid foundations needed to become proficient, musical, Tango dancers.
Come and learn with us on our sprung maple vintage dancefloor
We agree with Carlos Gavito when he said:
“A good dancer is one who listens to the music. We dance the music not the steps. Anyone who aspires to dance never thinks about what he is going to do. What he cares about is that he follows the music. You see, we are painters. We paint the music with our feet.”
We invite you to come and paint the dance floor with us
