Upcoming Beginner Intensives

The Beginner Intensive covers the basics of tango vocabulary, structure, technique and lead-and-follow improvisation. We change partners after every song, so there's no need to bring a partner (though you're welcome to if you have one!). The Intensive prepares students to enter directly into our Advanced Beginner Level. This intensive is open to students with no previous experience in tango. Students with experience may also take this intensive to review and reinforce the basics.

The next Beginner Intensive takes place as the four-day Absolute Beginner Track during the Philadelphia International Tango Festival.


Another option for beginners is to take our weekly beginner class on Thursday evenings. Details on the weekly beginner class here. After attending the weekly beginner class for 8 weeks, you may move on to our Advanced Beginner Level.

ALL STUDENTS: Please bring smooth-soled shoes to change into in the studio. Please do not plan to dance in the street shoes that you arrive in. Thanks!
