Cristian Cisneros and Virginia Porrino from Buenos Aires will be resident teachers at TanguerIN Studio in March 2010

In March all tango classes in TanguerIN Studio will be taught by two very special resident teachers  - Cristian Cisneros and Virginia Porrino - maestros, dancers and choreographers of argentine tango from Buenos Aires. For this reason TanguerIN has decided to organize the March classes in courses all taught by the distinguished guests. It is possible to register for a full course as well as to visit individual classes. In addition to the courses for different levels in March Cristian and Virginia will teach special workshops in milonga and tango-vals.

This is the first time ever that professional argentinean tango dancers will stay as resident teachers at a local tango school in Bulgaria. TanguerIN Studio applies this innovative idea with the hope to increase the popularity of the argentine tango in the country and to speed up the development of a strong and committed community of local tango aficionados.
