Weekend Tango Workshops

Tango Weekend on Loch Tay

4-6 April 2003

The Edinburgh Tango Society (ETS) invites you to the fifth weekend of tango and outdoor activities at the loch-side activities centre on Loch Tay. This is a residential centre, full catered with facilities and instruction for outdoor activities such as skiing, canoeing, mountain biking etc, yoga, and a bar and dance floor for the evening/night. The weekend starts on Friday night and ends Sunday afternoon, and will include tango workshops in the morning and evening, dancing at night and outdoor activities in the day time. Classes will be given this time by visiting teachers from Holland, Birkit and Muzaffer. Birkit and Muzaffer have been regular teachers in Edinburgh for nearly five years. This is the first time they come to Firbush. There are spaces for 36 open to dancers from Scotland and visitors from the UK and abroad: we especially welcome visitors. The workshop can be booked now. The price covers accommodation, meals, outdoor activities and 4 hours of tango classes.The places will go on a first come first served basis open to all levels of dancers. For the lessons the group will be split in two, both groups having 1 1/2 hour morning lessons on Saturday and Sunday, and each group having 1 hour on either Friday or Saturday.
In addition we will be having the tango trio Tango L'Amour playing live during the evening milongas on Friday and Saturday.

Birkit Wildenburg and Muzaffer Demiray

Biki and Muzaffer started dancing tango together in 1992. They founded their own tango school in late 1994. Since then they have been teaching and giving (small) performances in and outside the Netherlands (Belgium, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Turkey and the USA). Over the years they have developed their own styles and principles within the tango. They dance and teach two salon styles (one known as 'Milonguero' style) and a 'show'style.
