In SEptember I cannot hold a full session about technics. So dance technics and corrections of basic steps will be included in the Otea routine session. Consequently, we will finish the routine during the afternoon session. Then we’ll learn the aparima.

This workshop cannot really be separated into morning class and an afternoon class.
However, for those who can only take the morning class to be able to join us, we propose a special rate.
But priority will be given to students taking full course.
