Weekend Tango Workshops

Eric Jorissen with Jessie Kennedy

Eric Jorissen, of El Corte fame, is one of Europe's leading teachers of tango. Eric returns to Edinburgh for his annual winter tango weekend—his 10th—and will give 5 workshops over the weekend. He will be teaching with help from Jessie. His workshops have proved extremely popular in the past, so please pre-book to ensure access to his classes. There will be a limited number of couples per class.

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.
