** Beginner class: It  is suitable for beginners and dancers with some prior experience who wish to perfect the basics. Get it right the first time! Learn how to lead and follow anyone. Walking, cross, ochos, and simple turns.

** Intermediate class: Building on basic concepts and connection between partners, we add in this class some new fancy moves that are suitable for social dancing (milongas). The leaders will practice their navigation skills and learn how to creatively combine elements by switching systems and sides of embrace. The followers will be challenged to a variety of interesting intermediate moves, such as voleos, ganchos and volcadas, while creating beautiful lines, and adding adornments. All participants must have completed a beginner course in Argentine tango.
