Class Cancellations and Changes 

All-levels and advanced classes for Tango are canceled Wednesday, October 29th.

Group Class and Private Lesson Policies

Our classes are progressive, meaning they build on concepts from week to week, and begin new at the start of each month. Classes may be joined only in the first two weeks of each month. If you would like to join an Intermediate class and have not completed our Foundations courses in that dance, or are not sure what class you should be in, please call ahead to schedule a free evaluation with an instructor.

Private lessons are a great opportunity for accelerated learning and specialized attention with an instructor. Private lessons may be taken alone or shared with up to four people (a cost effective option). Private lessons guarantee time with an instructor. They do not guaranteed a private room or special music, especially during peak hours (7-9 p.m., Monday - Thursday).
