About this event

We are delighted and honoured to have Andres “Tanguito’’ Cejas teaching in Edinburgh for two nights only on Wednesday 19th October and Thursday 20th October. For this series of special workshops Andres will be assisted by tango dancer and teacher Julieta Pineda.  

Master of masters, he is one of the top level worldwide references of Tango Salon style. Main disciple of the legend Osvaldo Zotto, and leading the transmission of his style to the young generations. A style that was recorded by Zotto and Tanguito in the first ever tango course on video, that became a learning source and inspiration in the beginning of the 90´s for all professional dancers in Argentina and all around the world afterwards.
