The Pre-Advanced course is meant as an INTRODUCTION of more advanced elements such as cadenas, alterations, boleos, sacadas, ganchos, soltadas etc. Each 8 weeks course is an introduction to one new element and it's directly followed by Advanced course (following 8 weeks) focused on the same element.
If after 8 weeks of introduction you can comfortably dance the new element we encourage you to take it to the next level and continue exploring it during Advanced course. If however you don't feel comfortable and there is no way you can lead or follow the element during the Milonga quite yet, we advise you to remain at solely Pre-Advanced level continuing getting familiar with the next and next element rather then clattering your head with new combinations that you cannot quite use. Practice makes perfect and when you are ready you will know it.
Please be prepare that in the Pre-Advanced course there are students freshly graduated from Intermediate level as well as those who are taking our classes for years and are truly advanced dancers. PLEASE RESPECT EACH OTHER. Bite your tongue and refrain from loud comments about who should or should not be in the class. Please remember that everyone has to start somewhere and today’s Beginner is tomorrow’s pro-dancer. At the end we will all happily meet at the Milonga.
If you are ready to really dig into the technique and structure all Argentine Tango elements one by one, open to understand the mechanics of the movement and structure of the dance, practice the ability to read the direction, recreate beautiful lead every time and focus on musicality - that's what this course is about!
If you already going out to the Milongas but feel you vocabulary need some enrichment, that you are missing some information about technique, mechanics, and connection that makes it difficult for you to move forward to the next level of dancing - this is the course for you.
Once you are out of intermediate level you can take and retake this course as many times as you wish. If you never heard of the element that we are focusing on at any given series – this is the best course to take in order to understand them. If you are already dancing the element but you have doubts about the technique this class will benefit you too. For first timers: take all series to widen your horizons. For old foxes – come to classes that are of your interest.
First 4 weeks of series focuses on technique and exercises. Second 4 weeks puts the new element in use by creating sample combination(s).
Pre-advanced level works in 8 week series. You can join any series at its beginning. If you miss the first 4 weeks please have a courtesy of taking private lesson to catch up with the rest of the group.
