Event Details

The INTERMEDIATE Level is divided into 3 8-weeks series. You can take them in any order. Each class is 90-minutes.

This course is NOT for you if you started your Tango adventure last week or took couple of lessons here and there. And we mean it. All of our Tango classes are structured certain way for a reason. We want to create not just good, but fantastic Tango dancers. If what matters to you is the name of level – think twice. At the end what you don’t even know that you don’t know bites you back.

This course is for students who are fascinated by Tango deeply enough that they can take time understanding and practicing details: technique, structure, musicality.

In 3 8-weeks courses we will be discovering, analyzing and practicing this one of the most interesting and most widely used tango steps.
