Frequently asked questions

How do I go about attending the class?

Our weekly classes run on a drop-in basis so there is no need to book in advance. Just bring yourself, with or without a partner, and a pair of shoes that you can swivel in easily.

You can join anytime, though you might find it less daunting to get going at the beginning of each quarter when the course restarts.

How long before I can move up to the 2nd class?

The beginners course last for 12 weeks or so. Once you have completed the course at least once and feel ready, then you are welcome to attend the second class. Staying for the practica and the milonga will also help you acquire the skills faster and develop into a confident dancer.
