Who are Adrian & Amanda Costa?

“Specialists of the Villa Urquiza Style, their tango rimes with simplicity, elegance of the abrazo, of the walk, a unique interpretation of musicality. Watching them is living their tango full of emotions, feelings and pleasure; and it is also visualising the music and its instruments.  Rather than simply teaching, they wish to transmist their passion and share their talents. “

They will give some workshops in both Brussels at the Villa Urquiza School (28 May) and Liège at La Mi’Lune (29 and 30 May).
