Summer Session 2019

We offer regular classes for each level of dance. Wherever you are in your tango journey, we can help. 

Small Group Intensives

Each summer, we offer smaller group intensives that allow us to offer more personalised attention to each student. And for more experienced dancers, we cover special topics that we don’t get to during regular sessions.

These intensives last for 5 weeks and cost $125 per person (HST included). Classes will take place at our small studio at 235 Montreal Road. 

These spots will go fast, so please email us to register for class soon.

Starting Monday, July 22

6:45 – 8:00 PM (4 couples max)

Elastic Moves 2: More tiny colgadas and volcadas to add spice to your dance. (Int-adv)
