Acoustic Guitar - Absolute Beginners

Led by Jim Maving

Always wanted to learn guitar but never got around to it? Want to trade your air guitar skills for real guitar skills? It is never too late to learn. Learn guitar right from the very beginning. This is a foundation course for those with little to no experience of playing guitar. You will learn how to hold a guitar and to make the right noises out of it. The aim of these lessons is to get you playing your first song within 4 weeks of lessons, as no-one takes up guitar to strum random chords, it’s all about the songs.

If you are returning to guitar having not played for some time and can barely remember chords this is a great way of getting back into the swing of things.

Align and Flow Yoga

Led by Deborah Le Vene-Page.

Align and Flow Yoga is influenced by the biomechanics and heart orientated philosophy of the Anusara Hatha style of yoga. With a specific alignment focus within the flow of postures the practice will tone and strengthen the body, improve posture and create more freedom in the body and mind resulting in a calm and relaxed state of being.

Each week there will be a different theme weaving its’ way through the session, but a typical class starts with breathing techniques to centre and ground, poses to warm up and then progresses to a fun and challenging mix of vinyasa and alignment yoga.

This class is designed to cultivate focus, stamina, strength, and flexibility. Leaving time at the end for a well-deserved relaxation.

Come prepared for an energising class that will also leave you feeling relaxed.

Suitable for 18+ years

Tango Calor

A collective of wonderful musicians who share a love for Argentine tango.

Tango Calor was set up by bandoneon player Mirek Salmon (BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Welsh National Opera, RSC) in 2016.

For this concert Mirek will be joined by guitar virtuoso Daryl Kellie described by D’Addario Strings as ‘Truly stunning’ and sensational vocalist Indira Roman.

Together they will take you on a journey from the classic tango of 1930s Buenos Aires to the beloved music of Astor Piazzolla and may even include some surprise versions of more contemporary hits. Expect romance, passion and fireworks.

'A great punching combo that combines tradition with Nuevo flavours. One of the best tango trios you will hear in the UK without a doubt' Eduardo Bozzo, Tango Alchemy

​'As professional teachers and hosts, if you want dancers to be out of their seats and enjoy great music, Tango Calor really does that' Joanna & James Whitehead, Viva la dance
