All levels: Classes for beginners and advanced dancers alike. Many classes will focus on individual movement and technique, body awareness, musicality and deep fundamentals. 

Intermediate: You are familiar with fundamental tango vocabulary and comfortable leading/following patterns. These classes will challenge you to develop new combinations and gain confidence in creating dynamic steps.

Advanced: You are looking to gain targeted training in the class topic to achieve better quality of movement and integrate different steps. You should be comfortable with the topic and ready to dive into the specifics of technique and execution.

Advanced Couples: Bring a partner and challenge yourself to dance the signature specialty of our featured instructors. If you feel all too familiar and comfortable in your dancing, this class is for you! 

Practicas: Join us for special practicas guided by local host/instructors, to refine the materials learned in classes.

All the classes will be conveniently located at or near the Norse Hall. Please contact us for any questions and we will be happy to answer them.
