CLASS STRUCTURE & LEVELS
At Bulent & Lina Tango, Toronto Tango program are structured in 4 core levels with small sub-levels. Students who follow these levels can usually master concepts and skills of Argentine Tango much faster. To ensure that students are able to dance on a social dance floor in a few weeks' of dance lessons, we are keen on incorporating elegance, grace, good techniques, improvisation skills as well as floor craft since the early days of Tango Dance learning.
