May 3 to 10, 2014 Siobhan Richards & Michael Lavocah

Siobhan and Michael have been teaching all over Europe for many years. They are known for their gentle, humorous and patient attitude towards their students.  Their teaching ing focusses on the ever more important basics of tango  - the things that really help you on the dance floor:  body awareness, axis, presence, musicality, stress-free dancing and a subtle connection to the partner.
Michael is also a sought-after DJ and has recently published a book about tango music specifically for dancers: "Tango Stories, Musical Secrets."  With his music selection  he will  turn  the dance evenings at La Rogaia  into a very special experience.

 May 10 to 17,  2014   Ariadna Naveira & Fernando Sanchez 

Despite  their  young age Ariadna and Fernando are already among the top teachers in the international Tango world. They have a deep knowledge of the structure and movement of the classic tango. - No wonder, when you have the most famous tango teacher in the world  (Gustavo Naveira)  as "personal coach". If  you are an advanced  level Tango dancers, you should not miss this intensive seminar with Ariadna and Fernando.

 May 17 to 24, 2014   Beatrix Satzinger & Michael Young 

Beatrix and Michael  will show you how to dance to the music without effort and how  to adapt yourself to the partner without losing yourself. They stress sensitive and respectful partnership  is a  priority for clear, inviting leading as well as musically danced following.
Beatrix and Michael do not want to impress with intricate step sequences  -  even though they easily could  - but  they want to  show  you  a relaxed and harmonious  way to dance. 

 May 24 to 31, 2014   Metin Yazir 

Metin Yazir, the "magician", dances with  "oriental"  musicality  and  a  special empathy. Even beginners  seem weightless and elegant  when dancing with him. Metin has an exceptional talent as teacher: he will introduce to you the secrets of lead and follow with a very precise observation of individual problems and with lots of humor, energy and temperament...   Metin’s workshop at La Rogaia will touch base on partnership, connection, rhythm, healthy dancing (avoiding injury or pain) and playfulness.
