Dance levels This is a description of the different levels of dancing ability, so that you can sign up for the appropriate workshops.
New beginner: You have never danced Argentine tango, or you have a slight knowledge through participation in a few workshops, or perhaps you have previously gone to classes, but have forgotten most of it.
Beginner: You have gone to regular classes, about once a week in the past year, and you use and improvise fairly freely with the basic figures.
Intermediate: You have gone to regular classes for at least a couple of years, and in the past year have been dancing more than once a week. You dance with a certain routine and improvise reasonably effortlessly at a milonga.
Advanced: You are a very experienced dancer and have danced regularly (2-3 times per week) for 4-5 years or more. You feel equally comfortable dancing tango, tango waltz and milonga.
