Come learn from renowed tango instructor Oscar Casas when he returns to Little Rock!

UPDATE: Oscar was originally scheduled to be accompanied by his partner Ana Miguel, but it looks like she will need to stay in Buenos Aires to take care of some personal matters. We're still looking forward to a great workshop with Oscar!

Here's some more information about Oscar:

Oscar Casas grew up in Buenos Aires, breathing tango. His father was a milonguero who organized milongas in Parque Patricios, a tango barrio in Buenos Aires. Oscar is a well-known figure in the milongas of Buenos Aires, and his distinctive style is greatly admired by other milongueros.

Oscar’s improvisational dance reflects some current techniques of different styles of tango but never loses the spirit of the Old Guard. He believes that tango is “a feeling that is danced” and, for him, tango is endlessly fresh and fun
