Annoucing our 3rd Tango Medicine Retreat 2024 in Wales




We are so so proud to announce our third Tango Medicine retreat: 16th - 19th May 2024. Once again held at the stunning location of Coed Hills Rural Art space in South Wales, with stunning views, regal main hall with heated floor, inspiring fairy cabins spotted across the beautiful grounds, a sauna & plunge pool, stunning woodland and wild swimming lake. During the retreat we will prepare epic organic food, especially designed to complement & empower your health, and of course, the beautiful experience of Tango Medicine in nature.






Our Gourmet organic food is designed in advanced to support & invest in local organic & sustainable farming. At the last retreat we managed to get over 90% of the ingredients grown organically in the UK. This year our beautiful chef Vieve, with years of holistic nutritional health experience, is creating our menu.


Our Tango Medicine technique is kind, respectful, and designed to help people understand the benefits of Tango to quality of life & creating community. It combines dance therapy, body type dynamics with Tango techniques, combining Argentine & Celtic folklore live music, and of course being in nature respectfully, with access to a natural lake, sauna & plunge pool.

Testimonials from previous retreats:


 "I came to the retreat not really knowing why, I just knew I needed to come. I knew there was the element of needing to feel in my body - because I don't know how that feels - and I woke up this morning knowing how it felt"

 Joy Minton, after the weekend retreat in September 2022.








Venue: Coed Hills Rural Art Space



Near Cardiff, Wales, it is a sustainable community with over 25 years of experience in how to live respectfully in nature.

FAQs


Do I need to bring a partner?

No need at all, many people will come on thier own


Can I bring my children?

Yes! All are welcome, but you may need to bring a co parent like a friend or grandparent to look after them so you can concentrate on your reatreat :) Please message so we can arrange.


Do I need shoes?

If you have Tango shoes bring them; you can buy jazz shoes for about £10; or just a pair of old socks. This is so you can pivot without hurting your knees. If you only have heals and are a profiencient dancer already, bring flat shoes as we will be encouraging you to learn to lead too.


Do I need experience?

No, we are equipt to teach basics, and the guided Práctica will help you put what you learn into practice.


How do you cater for both novices and experienced Tango dancers?

Firstly, we are all students of Tango, so we are always learning 🥰 We teach the medicine of Tango to people of all abilities, including how to dance with respect for your body and body type, gender neutrality, and many other aspects that create an inclusive Tango environment.

Those who are more experienced will be learning in an advanced class separate to beginners, as we all require different things at different stages of our Tango practice. We then come all together to practise during the evening Práctica (which simply means a practice).


How do I get there if I'm taking the train/bus?

We will provide a lift from the station in Cardiff on Thursday afternoon for those coming on public transport.


What food?

All the food will be gluten-free, vegan and organic where possible. We are getting part of the food from an awe-inspiring project called Crops Not Shops, which enables people to grow thier own food, and supplies fresh organic vegetables to low income families - a wonderful project to support with our wonderful retreat; from the local organic farmer on the land at Coed Hills.


What should I bring?

  • We will be in nature, so be prepared for chilly nights

  • bring layers of clothing, outdoors may be fresh but the hall is heated

  • swimming suit if you wish

  • two towels for sauna and showering

  • hot water bottle

  • extra socks

  • comfortable clothes

  • your own tent if you're not staying in accomodation - lots of insulation and experience of camping in wet Wales, don't do it if you're not prepared!

  • torch as loos are outside

  • extra snacks if you wish
