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.

       
 

The second workshop began offset to right in cross-system:

 
  forward on left foot (left with left);

open step on right foot (right with right) around follower along LOD;

hook left leg behind follower's right leg and transfer weight for sacada;

forward step on right foot (right with right) along LOD;

and moved on to a multiple sacada from offset to left in cross-system:

 

 

 
right foot (right with right) forward to hook behind follower's left leg for sacada;

nudge forward on left leg;

hook right leg behind follower's left leg for sacada;

nudge forward on left leg;

hook right leg behind follower's right leg for sacada;

continue along LOD

then we began as before and added more sacadas:

 
  right foot (right with right) forward to hook behind follower's left leg for sacada;

nudge forward on left leg;

hook right leg behind follower's left leg for sacada;

nudge forward on left leg;

hook right leg behind follower's right leg for sacada;

step on left

right foot steps around to side of follower;

cross left foot back in front of right foot
