The practice between classes should enable you to put into practice what you learn in other classes. Dress comfortably and bring your dancing shoes. For beginners if you don’t have dancing shoes, please use supportive slippy shoes- not grippy rubber soles!



With the advice of our teachers, these are the suggestions they asked to put in practice when choosing your Level. The Level 1 class is open to dancers with less than 2 years of continuous experience of classes AND social dancing. Level 2 is open only to those dancers that have been dancing socially in milongas for over two years and are capable of doing the cross, ochos and giros confidently.

If you have any doubt, please ask teachers for advice!!!

If you want to move on to the next level, ask teachers first for advice!! Having the continuity of the same teachers over a long period has the advantage that they will know what is your level of dancing and what class is more suitable for you in order to progress quickly and effectively.
