March 5-12, 2017: Maui, Hawaii
Brigitta Winkler and Sharna Fabiano co-host the second annual Aloha Girls retreat. This week-long program brings together bodywork and yoga, beach and nature excursions, and a customized tango curriculum for tango women on the exquisite island of Maui.
“The Aloha Girls 2016 women’s retreat was like a week-long elaborately prepared and finely crafted banquet of tango delicacies. Brigitta and Sharna used only the finest ingredients from their vast storehouses of teaching skills...I found the “high-five!” kind of joy of learning, and I found inspiration for the future of tango in my world.” — Vicky Ayers
