Weekend Tango Workshops

Eric Jorissen with Jessie

10-11 March 2012

One of the must go events of the year for many regular Edinburgh dancers, a fabulous weekend of workshops with Eric Jorissen from El Corte, Nijmegen, teaching with Edinburgh local teacher Jessie. This is Eric's 10th visit to Edinburgh and is certainly going be a great success as before. Eric is a truly inspirational teacher and a joy to work with. If you haven't been to Eric's workshops this is your chance - remember to book early to avoid disappointment as the classes fill up quickly.

Eric Jorissen

While Eric is not working at El Corte, the excellent tango centre he has helped build up in Njmegen in the Netherlands, he travels the world teaching tango. - he has even been called 'the best tango teacher in the world!', for his inspiration, ideas and good humour. His special teaching style attracts many people to his classes, not least dancers from Edinburgh who travel to El Corte for monthly weekend-long milongas and special events, including the summer study week.
