  Important Updates:


For Spring 2017, "La Valle Rosada" will be:


  • "All Levels"

    Spring 2017 will be open to women tango dancers with experience in one — or both — roles.

    Workshops, prácticas, discussions and activities will be appropriate to dancers of "all levels," including those who are newer to leading ...


  • À La Carte Scheduling

    Participating dancers will be able to attend the Weekend Workshops + Events "à la carte."

Some dancers who are interested in "La Valle Rosada" may have prior commitments or conflicts that make it difficult for them to commit to all of the Core Weekend's events + workshops.

For Spring 2017, an "à la carte" approach will allow these dancers to choose among Rosada's offerings and to join Brigitta + Deb for those events + workshops that best fit their schedules.

    * Pre-registration is required, however — all the events + workshops in the Spring 2017 edition of Rosada will be aimed at a maximum of 12 participating dancers.

To express your interest in joining "La Valle Rosada," please contact us by email ...


  • By Donation

Some dancers may find it difficult to afford the fees that are typically associated with a Retreat or Weekend like "La Valle Rosada."

In order to maximize access to this gathering, for Spring 2017 we will offer all Workshops + Events of the Core Weekend by donation.

Participating dancers can choose their own best level of support for "La Valle Rosada" — and they will be free to make a contribution informed by the value of their experience and what they can afford.

This approach will also allow gifted dancers of more modest means the opportunity to join Brigitta + Deb for Rosada, without the barrier of financial limitation.

Out-of-town dancers who plan to stay overnight in Ojai will still need to secure their own local housing. To help make this and future editions of Rosada possible, we encourage visiting dancers to consider booking their accommodations at Cois Dara ...

Register


All email inquiries + applications to "La Valle Rosada" will be shared with Brigitta + Deb.

Together, they will review these submissions, and then select what they feel will be the best mix of dancers to invite to "La Valle Rosada" 2017.

Enrollment for this edition of "La Valle Rosada" is limited to a maximum of twelve (12) participating dancers.

As Brigitta + Deb make their decisions, you will be notified by email — and if invitedyou will be asked to affirm your commitment to join them in Ojai as a participating dancer in the Core Weekend, March 30 - April 2, 2017:

  • As detailed in the "Important Updates" section above, this edition of "La Valle Rosada" will be by donation, and dancers will be able to choose their own schedule and attend Workshops + Events à la carte.

    So that we can better serve all the dancers who may be interested in attending some or all of this Spring's Rosada, participants will be asked at registration to identify which Workshops + Events of the Core Weekend they expect to attend.

  • Because our "by donation" approach for Spring 2017 does not require pre-payment in order to attend, thank you for keeping in mind that space is limited ... so it is important to keep your word.

    If you tell us that you will join us for a particular à la carte Workshop or Event, and then do not, this choice may prevent another interested dancer from attending.

Thank you for honoring the spirit, generosity, openness and community of "La Valle Rosada" by thoughtfully committing only to those Workshops + Events that you will attend.


IMPORTANT:  Note on Housing

  • As you are completing your registration and plans for "La Valle Rosada" 2017, please remember that — in order to help keep costs low and provide dancers with their maximum flexibility for how best to engage the retreat — we do not provide housing for this event.
  • This means that participating dancers will need to make arrangements for and secure their own housing in Ojai during the Core Weekend ... and for any Extended Visit, if they choose to stay on for any (or all) of the optional post-weekend outings and tango activities with Brigitta + Deb.
  • Fortunately, Ojai is a popular tourist destination which offers a wide range of housing possibilities for visitors to the Valley — including hotels, motels, Airbnb's and more.
