Dance Workshops

Arratia | Baztango Dantzak | Fandango/Arin Arin | Dance Leaders' Summit

We have been fortunate to receive collaboration from the Basque Government in order to bring top dancers, musicians and instructors in their fields from the Basque Country to our Basque Communities. These workshops are generally targeted toward dance group instructors and more advanced dancers.

Because of the limits of how long instructors can take off from work to be here with us, it is impossible for them to visit each club or region. It is important, then, that if your club has a specific interest that it expresses this early in the process of setting up a workshop. Also, we hope that hosting clubs and organizations choose to open up their workshop to all those interested from other clubs and towns.

If you have a particular topic in mind for a future workshop, contact:
