Workshop Information - Please read BEFORE you register.
There will be a limited number of participants per class. That number will be limited to an equal number of leaders and followers. Both couples and singles will be accepted, however singles will be put on waiting lists and admitted in to classes only when we can confirm an equal number of partners. The only exception to this will be in Workshop 5 & 6 as they are designed for individual attendees.
Please note, that as much as we will try to match people appropriately, we can not be responsible for the level of proficiency of every participant of every class. The only way to be certain about the level of your "workshop partner" with is to register with someone whom you already know.
We always encourage partner changes in class, however we will not oblige those who register with their partner to change, should they not wish to do so.
Open : These classes are great for dancers of all levels from intermediate to advanced. Lower levels students and very advanced dancers are advised to come with a partner of their own level, this will really help-everyone get the very best out of each class.
Intermediate: This corresponds to have completed at least a basic beginners course of 8 weeks+ with some practice time since. Intermediates should be familiar with the basic posture, walking, side steps, ochos, and a few other basic elements.
Intermediate/Advanced: This corresponds to have at least 1 year's experience including regular weekly tango classes and practices and milongas. You have also attended milonga and or waltz classes as well as experiencing different teachers.
Advanced : An advanced dancer's experience can vary greatly from one person to the next. Content in the advanced classes is intended for dancers with multiple years of class and workshop experience, who practice and go out dancing often, who are comfortable in both close and open embrace and has a good understanding of the technique associated with them. We prefer that participants of advanced classes register with their partner for these classes as working with a dependable partner will greatly enhance the experience.
