About the event

This mini workshop is brought to you by Harriet Waghorn, one of the Temenos family, but also a internationally acclaimed Director, Choreographer and Dancer. 

Harriet will help you to explore partner dancing from a completely new perspective. Her extensive professional experience combining contemporary, contact improvisation and ballroom give her a unique approach to partner dancing and she will be sharing her knowledge, passion and skills with you. 

The first hour will be teaching and the second hour will be a jam where FX10K will be providing a spicy Latin set to make sure everyone gets to test out some of the newly learned material. 

Absolutely no previous experience is necessary to attend this session.
