Home >> Our Classes & Events >> Tango Curriculum >> 100 Level Classes
The 100 level classes provide the foundational concepts and techniques in order to progress to the 200 level classes. Our beginner series is broken into 3 six-week series: Walking (T101), Turning (T102) and Essential Figures (T103). Each series is broken into 2 hours each week with the second hour focusing on guided practice time. These 3 series do not have to be taken in any order, new students can begin with T101, T102 or T103.

The goal of our beginner 100 level classes is to teach our new students the 5 primary steps and the 5 essential figures of tango. We also focus heavily on connection, embrace and musicality. We also teach the codes of social dancing and proper Tango etiquette, so that you can enjoy social Tango dance parties which are called Milongas.
