Tango Workshops

Tango Workshop Notes

We may designate a suggested dancer level in the workshop description.  If students are uncertain whether the material will be too complex for them, please scroll down for some help. In selecting the appropriate level of workshop please consider the length of time you have danced as well as your personal ability to lead or follow, successfully.

Beginner (not many members in this club!)

Realistically speaking, completing a six or eight week course in Argentine Tango does not elevate the student from the Beginner status! Six months of regular dancing is often still considered Beginner by the more accomplished. In selecting the appropriate level of workshop please consider the length of time you have danced as well as your personal ability to lead or follow, successfully.

Intermediate (almost everyone)

In general an Intermediate dancer is one who dances regularly and can successfully dance with multiple partners (consecutively, not concurrently) at social events. If you are not a regular social dancer but you have attended multiple classes that are considered to be at an intermediate level, you will be comfortable in all beginner/intermediate and intermediate level workshops.

Advanced (long-time devoteés)

An advanced dancer is one who has pursued tango on a higher level, studied with professional maestros and constantly challenges their ability to excel in the dance. It is not always the complexity of steps that makes a class advanced; it refers more to the skill level required of the student to execute the movements taught with exceptional technique, elegance and poise.

A Word –

If you feel that your skills are improving hour by hour during these workshops you may be inclined to challenge yourself to a workshop that is possibly slightly ahead of your skill set, but please be considerate of the more advanced students who will have specifically selected the more advanced designations and will (naturally) expect the students who share in that workshop to be of comparable ability...

‘Nuff said.
