Tango for intermediate level with Wolfgang & Annette: "Tango dancing made easy: Dance - With ease - Beautifully - To the Music"
Wolfgang Sandt & Annette Greifenhagen
This course will help you to dance much better and more musically without stress.
Of course, you can stuff your dance with a myriad of different characters.
But that does not mean you dance better.
Experience has shown that it is nicer and less stressful to dance with a few simple elements, but in harmony with the music.
In this class, we'll be dancing with simple elements that you probably already know.
However, we will adapt these elements to the character of each music.
To a slow, romantic tango by Di Sarli good dancers dance differently than to a rhythmic tango by D'Arienzo or a dramatic tango by Pugliese or Troilo.
It is not, if you know how to make dancing easy.
And that's exactly what we show you!
We will treat a different aspect of tango every day of the class.
Stillness - Energy - Lightness - Grounding - Change in Dynamics and Drama
Based on selected musical examples, we will show you how to recognize each of these aspects (usually it's easy) and to dance to it with simple, beautiful steps.
Of course, you will have plenty of time, both in the course and the practicas in the evening, to practice everything and thereby gain security.
Our motto: Dance simply + Dance to the music = Beautiful and stress-free dancing

A comment about Wolfgang and Annette as teachers: The Tango course was an experience I don´t want to miss anymore. Many thanks to Wolfgang and Annette, who imparted in a very sympathetic and structured way their profound knowledge of Argentine Tango. In future I will save money on courses at home but treat my wife and me to another holiday at La Rogaia instead. Andreas from Sprockhövel

Book a Tango Holiday at Zero Risk
Of course, we cannot predict the development of the COVID19 pandemic and the associated travel restrictions.
However, in view of the constantly improving situation in Italy, where vaccinations are progressing rapidly, we assume that our courses can take place under normal conditions again in 2022
We are happy to take reservations or bookings.
Of course, our special cancellation conditions still apply in case that we have to cancel our courses due to pandemic restrictions:
- If a course cannot take place due to "force majeure" (e.g. the COVID19 pandemic) or if the participants cannot travel due to travel restrictions / travel warnings, we grant free cancellation up to 24 hours before the start of the course.
In that case we will refund your full payment.
- If we have to cancel the course from our side (e.g. due to insufficient number of participants), you will of course receive your full payment back. We will inform you at least 1 month before the course starts whether the course can take place or not. However, unfortunately we cannot assume any costs for flight bookings or the like that have already been made. We therefore recommend that you wait with flight bookings etc. until we have finally confirmed a class.
For all other reasons for cancellation, our usual cancellation conditions apply, which you can find HERE
