Introductory Course - November 2010

Tango Argentino - Primeros Pasos
(introductory course for complete beginners)

Argentine tango is a beautiful dance and it has attracted the attention of most major cities in the world. Even here in Malta we have a group of tango enthusiasts who are only too happy to pass on their knowledge of this addictive dance.


Dates:
Monday 8th November 2010
Monday 15th November 2010
Monday 22nd November 2010
Monday 29th November 2010
Monday 6th December 2010

Time: 7.30pm

Price:
€50 per person / €35 for full-time students & senior citizens.
€25 for those that would like to repeat the course.

Apart from these lessons, we also meet every week for our regular Milonga (the social event where Tango is danced), and other activities.


Please confirm your attendance by email to nathalie@tangomalta.org stating your full name and mobile number (in case I need to contact you urgently) and all details of any accompanying friends.

Dress: What you want, normally, casual.
Shoes: Followers (usually women) are advised to wear well supported shoes with some heel - no flipflops please. Leaders (usually men) are advised to wear round toed shoes or gym shoes. Long pointed shoes make life difficult.

Dance partner: No need for a fixed partner.

IMPORTANT: Payment can be effected on the first lesson. Please arrive a little earlier. NO refunds will be issued for missed classes, unless informed at the beginning of the course.

Gift Vouchers:
A €10 discount voucher will be given for Tango shoes from Locatelli Tango Shoes.
Please remember that you can always give a Tango course as a gift to a loved one or a dear friend.

Starting from November, milongas at Villa Madama will be preceeded by an 1 hour class for Primeros and Principiantes.

You can encourage each other to help out in each others classes.
You will learn more and it is cheap. Price 5 euros includes milonga fee.

Dates and venue: milongas at Villa Madama
Price: 5 euros - includes milonga fee

Booking Policy: Bookings will only be confirmed upon receipt of payment. Cancellations are only allowed until the 15th November, after which no refunds will be given.

Advice: We encourage those taking primeros pasos and principiantes to take workshop A. For those taking Intermedios, as always you can benefit from all workshops since refinement in Tango is an important aspect of the dance. However, workshop B will definitely be aimed at your level. If you are not sure which workshop/s is best, you can always consult with Gordon or Claudia who will be able to guide you accordingly.

What next: For preliminary reservations email Claudia who will then guide you with the rest of the process.

For those coming from abroad, the Cavalieri Hotel is offering very favourable rates, starting from €150 per person for both workshop and accommodation for 4-nights! An offer not to be missed! - please contact Claudia for full details.
