Tango Levels 

These descriptions are to help you decide which level of workshop to book into. As everyone learns at a different rate, and has different levels of fitness, fluidity and time on the dance floor, use the description of what you need to be able to do to enter the level as a guide more than the length of time you have learnt tango. Please discuss your level with an advanced dancer in your area.

Teachers at the festival will teach to the level described, especially the Advanced level. If you find you have chosen the wrong level class at the festival, you can go to the registration desk and change into a more appropriate level for free within the first 15 minutes.
