The first ever Dubai Tango Festival comes to town on May 23. Now you can learn too. Get involved
The first ever Dubai Tango Festival comes to town on May 23, but not before the stars of the show teach a tango workshop from May 18-25 for any dance enthusiasts keen to brush up their moves. Well-known prancing pair Lucila Cionci and Rodrigo ‘Joe’ Corbata (you can see them dancing together on You Tube) will tutor you before giving their live performance at the Al Murooj Rotana Hotel & Suites. It’s a rare opportunity to be taught by some of the best in the business – also teaching and performing is Facundo Gil Jauregui, who learned his craft from both Gustavo Naveira, widely regarded as a contributor to the evolution of Tango, and Chicho Frumboli, a founder of Tango Nuevo. Go on, get your Tango face on.
