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.

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