Hints & Myths about Argentine Tango



One weekend, in the Spring of 2004, Richard Manuel from France & Eleonora from Rosario both then based in London, held a series of Tango workshops in the recently-refurbished Orangery of Bylaugh Hall in Norfolk.

Richard & Eleonora led a series of workshops with a small group of local or temporarily resident participants on Saturday and Sunday - morning and afternoon - based on caminita and corrida.

There was also a Valentine's Milonga on the Saturday night.

Their visits were to become a regular event in 2004. He attended most of them.
