A Followers' Tecnica class by Jelena Ivanovic will be held on Wednesday 18th November at 8pm at the University Common Room. This session is ideal for followers who are either at Intemediate level, or about to join the intermediate level. Due to the limit in the number of places available, we will be giving a first preference to those who are regularly taking classes with Nathalie and Gordon, and to those who practice on a regular basis (Milongas and practicas).

Price: €15 per person

Application: Email TangoMalta@gmail.com to reserve your place - Bookings will be confirmed only upon receipt of payment, and must be made until the 11th November. Claudia will be informing you if you are on the waiting list or if your booking has been accepted via reply email - please follow her instructions.

€20 for those that would like to repeat the course.

Pricipiantes November Cycle

For those of you that are enjoying the Primeros Pasos and would like to continue, the next level would be Principiantes. If you still feel very shaky on the elements that you've done in the Primeros, you may repeat the course at half price (€20).The primeros pasos will be held on the same dates as the Principiantes but at 7.30pm. You may also take both classes in parallel so that you continue consolidating the elements of Primeros Pasos, whilst learning new elements.
Dates (venues for these dates will be announced shortly)
Monday 23rd Nov 2009
Monday 30th Nov 2009
Monday 7th Dec 2009
Monday 14th Dec 2009
Time: 9.00pm
Price €40 (Senior citizens and full time students 30euros)

To apply, please email Nathalie. It would be ideal if you try to apply in pairs - ask fellow dancers during classes, practicas or milongas, and remember that we will change partners during lessons so it does not necessarily mean that you have to remain with the same partner throughout the lesson.
