Information and booking form

October 13th, 14th, 15th

Amanda and Adrian Costa are amongst the most influential Argentine tango teachers and performers of the admired Villa Urquiza style. Their teachers, Marita & Jorge Dispari, the main representatives of this style, both learned from the original dancers who developed the tango Villa Urquiza: El Turco José, Gerardo Portalea, Luis Lesmo "Milonguita", Carlos Estevez "Petroleo", "Cachito" Mantegaza, "Finito", José lampazo, Alberto Villarrazo... With passion and authenticity, Amanda and Adrian Costa transmit this heritage: the music, the dance codes, and the history of tango. Excellent teachers and philosophers, each class with them is a real treat for body and soul. Their dynamic style of dance, full of finesse and grace, is the result of remarkable technique and musicality. A couple in real life, their dancing transmits a real emotion, intense and sensual. They have been invited to teach all over the world: USA, Costa Rica, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, France, England, Ireland, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Tunisia. And now they are coming to Scotland for their third visit. 

This event is organised by the Edinburgh Tango Society.
