    Rina and Nadim Workshops

    14-15-16 June

    Rina and Nadim Sawaya, directors of Tango Esencia in Richmond, Melbourne, are returning to Perth for an exciting weekend of tango workshops and milongas!

    They are recent winners of the Oceania Tango Championships Pista Category 2024 in Auckland, New Zealand, and finalists in the Asian Tango Championships  in 2016 & 2019.

    Rina's early training in various dance genres such as classical ballet, combined with Nadim's musical prowess as a cellist and popular Tango DJ, forms a dynamic teaching partnership. Their teaching style is praised for its simplicity, making complex techniques accessible, while their performances showcase both beauty and technical precision. 

    Last year, PTC participants lauded their workshops for clear explanations, with Rina and Nadim providing excellent demonstrations that enhance learning experiences:

    • "Fantastic teacher, the best I have ever experienced"
    • "Simplicity of their teaching style"
    • "Well explained workshops"
    • "Friendliest teachers I've ever met"

    Beyond their teaching prowess, attendees relish the taste of authentic Argentine tango and the joy of learning from "the best" teachers. Rina and Nadim's lovely personalities create a welcoming atmosphere, making every participant feel valued and appreciated.

    Most notably, Rina's pioneering work in utilizing tango for Parkinson's patients underscores herr commitment to dance as a transformative and inclusive art form.

    Don't miss this opportunity to learn from and dance with Rina and Nadim in Perth! Join us for a weekend filled with expert instruction, joyous camaraderie, and unforgettable tango experiences.
