Sobre nuestros conferenciantes y artistas
Andrew Oldroyd is one of Tango West’s principal directors and teachers. Tango West was founded in 1998 at a time when there was relatively little Argentinian Tango outside London. It was instrumental in bringing Tango to Bristol and much of the surrounding area.
Andrew has studied extensively in the UK, Europe and Buenos Aires with great maestros, and he has many years of experience and a reputation for providing a very solid foundation in the basic principles of Argentine Tango in Bristol. His inspiration is the social dancing of the great Milongueros of Buenos Aires, whose style of dancing is rarely taught outside of Argentina.
Liesbeth Bennett has a background in ballet and has spent many years on and off in Buenos Aires doing a lot of social dancing in the traditional Milongas.
