Workshops are for 1.5 hours.

An Oceania Congress Pass (for competition entrants) or Oceania Milonguero Pass (for non-competition milongueros) entitles the holder to participate in four workshops (i.e. six hours of workshops). Holders can also register for additional workshops at the listed prices.

Some of the topics are covered across two linked Intensive Workshops in two parts for 3 hours. These workshops are designed to go deeper into the topics. Registrants for Intensive Workshops must register for both the Part A and Part B workshops for the relevant topic.

Please note that the workshops are at Intermediate and Advanced levels and are NOT SUITABLE FOR BEGINNERS OR IMPROVERS, EXCEPT FOR THE OPEN LEVEL WORKSHOPS!

Strictly no video recordings are allowed during workshops without the prior permission of the Teachers.
