Lessons/Practicas are for members only

Membership is $15/$10(students) for a semester (September 01 2002 - December 31 2002)
Membership also gives you admission to all the dance parties (called Milongas) during the semester. Check the club homepage for the latest schedule .

You are encouraged to stay after the lesson and dance with others, since that is what you will be doing in a social dance setting anyway. Practica has a more informal and less intimidating atmosphere than the milonga. This is a good opportunity to work on your dance skills and get/give help from/to others. Also dancing with more people will help improve your dancing much faster than dancing with the same person.

At the end of the series of 5 lessons there will be a field trip to one of the local milongas (tango dance parties) - kind of a graduation party! Details will be provided in the class.
