We have a surprise for you at Jacksons Lane on April 7!

We are collaborating with 4 leading London tango schools to bring you the most exciting workshop ever: secret of maestras and maestros, covering what we feel is our most useful advice to enhance and beautify your tango – both for leaders and followers.

We also have invited the vertuoso, award winning and harmonica world championships finalist Joe Powers, to play live during the milonga.
