Weekend Tango Workshops

Adrian and Amanda Costa Weekend Workshops

7-8 November 2015


Amanda and Adrian Costa are amongst the most influential Argentine tango teachers and performers of the admired Villa Urquiza style.

Their teachers, Marita & Jorge Dispari, the main representatives of this style, both learned from the original dancers who developed the tango Villa Urquiza: El Turco Josť, Gerardo Portalea, Luis Lesmo "Milonguita", Carlos Estevez "Petroleo", "Cachito" Mantegaza, "Finito", Josť lampazo, Alberto Villarrazo... With passion and authenticity, Amanda and Adrian Costa transmit this heritage: the music, the dance codes, and the history of tango. Excellent teachers and philosophers, each class with them is a real treat for body and soul. Their dynamic style of dance, full of finesse and grace, is the result of remarkable technique and musicality. A couple in real life, their dancing transmits a real emotion, intense and sensual. They have been invited to teach all over the world: USA, Costa Rica, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, France, England, Ireland, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Tunisia. And now they are coming to Scotland.
