What level should I enroll in?
There are three levels that are available to members (which cover a multitude of dances) as well as individual classes in; Argentine Tango, and Salsa. Levels are based on your familiarity with the dances (see level description).
- Level I: Teaches basic figures. Ideal for beginners as well as people who are not yet comfortable with moving on to more advanced dance steps.
- Level II: For the intermediate dancer, it is required that you have completed Level I twice prior to taking Level II. The Level II classes teach steps other than the basic figures.
- Level III: Level III is for dancers who have taken Level II at least twice. Level III dancers are welcome to register and enjoy a social dance atmosphere.
- Salsa Level I: This class will teach you the basics of the Salsa. This is a class that focuses solely on Salsa. In this class students will begin by learning the basics of the dance and over the course of the ten weeks more complex figures will be taught.
- Salsa Level II: For the intermediate/advanced dancer, it is required that you have completed Salsa Level I. The Salsa Level II class teaches intermediate and advanced figures.
- Argentine Tango: This is a class that focuses solely on the Argentine Tango. In this class students will begin by learning the basics of the dance and over the course of the ten weeks more complex figures will be taught.
- Summer Special: This class is offered during the spring semester in May & June. Often a combination of level 2 & level 3 dancers. This class will teach the basic figures of harder or rarely taught dances.
*Note: Some higher level classes will require a partner. However, single spaces are available in entry level classes.
* It is recommended that students take each level twice before advancing. However, exceptions can be made.
