Start your tango adventure
Liz & Yannick Vanhove


In addition to being a part of our 2017 Festival, Liz & Yannick are the 2012 European Salon Champions and finalists in the 2015 Metropolitan Championship of Buenos Aires in the category “Milongueros del Mundo.” We're excited that they're joining us again in 2018!

Liz & Yannick teach with humor and grace, and bring their elegant style of dancing into the classroom, which will benefit dancers beginning their tango journey as well as those who want to revisit basic technique.

Join us for what promises to be a playful and productive Beginner's Intensive!
