Beginner Classes

We have three types of classes for beginners: Friday introductory classes, Jump-Start Weekends, and Continuing Basics. Most Fridays, we hold introductory classes for those with zero tango experience. These classes are free, so they’re perfect for people who want to sample Argentine Tango without committing to anything. For those who are ready to take the plunge, we have a jump-start weekend every month to get beginners up and dancing. The essentials of leading and following are covered in six intensive hours of workshops. After completing a jump-start, dancers are ready to join the “Continuing Basics” series, which takes place on Thursday evenings at Brown. These classes are designed to give newer dancers practice refining their leading and following skills, while adding more vocabulary and tango technique to their repertoire. Continuing Basics can be joined at any point in the cycle.
