Workshops LVR4

Enjoy the workshops designed specifically by our maestros for this year’s theme.

Each workshop lasts one and a half hours.

The number of participants is limited.

The workshops can be taken separately or as part of a festival pass package.

We encourage the practice of open roles so no partner is needed. You can still choose a role on the payment page.

Practicas with maestros are included in some festival passes or can be taken separately. A discount is available if you choose a practica + milonga on the same evening.

Note that some workshops are held at the same time. A 30-minute break is scheduled between classes. The distance between the venues is 600m (8 minutes on foot). See Festival Venues.
