Beginners Tango Q&A:

  • What should I prepare for my class?
    Please wear normal clothing and shoes with non-stick soles. Heels for the ladies and leather shoes for the men are recommended. There is no need to purchase ballroom dance shoes just for the class as they are not suitable for Argentine Tango. We do carry Argentine tango shoes for sale at our studio.

  • Do I need a partner? 
    You don't need to find a partner for learning the tango. Students can enroll alone or in pairs. We will rotate partners during the class. 

  • After taking the Beginners Course, What next?
    Students can take elementary level classes, can pay by the class, or purchase our 10 or 20-class packages. In time, we will let students know when they are ready to take more advanced classes. Students should also join our practicas often to practice what they've learned and to dance with other people. 

  • How long does it take to learn Argentine Tango? 
    All students can essentially start dancing in milongas (tango parties) after the beginners' course, although the average time for students to feel at ease dancing in the milongas is 6-12 months. However, most students continue learning with us for years, polishing their dance and learning new movements. 

  • Why choose Malevos?
    - Legacy - The funder masters are passionate to pass down the legacy of their masters, from whom they have learned intensively for an extended period of time. The development of tango over the years has led to ideas becoming mixed, scattered and sometimes confusing, but they are persistent to teach a traditional style of tango and ensure its essence is not lost.
    - Professionalism - Apart from having a systematic teaching method, Malevos is quick to adapt their teaching to student's weaknesses and strengths and provide customize d guidance to them through their road to growing their Tango.
    - Approach -  Their years of teaching experience allow them to be able to explain the movements in the dance as natural body movements and in great detail as they fully understand the difficulties of learning the tango for "non-dancers". They are able to communicate the sensations and subtleties in the dance in a way that is easy to understand. Their approach to teaching is detailed, precise, humorous, and aimed at introducing tango as a social dance, not just as a competitive sport or exhibition.

  • If I have taken a beginner’s course at other Tango schools, which class shall I join?
    We recommend students who have had less than 6 month’s experience learning at other schools to start from our beginners' course. For those with more experience who would like to join our elementary or more advanced classes, we highly recommend them to join our beginners' classes concurrently or take private lessons to familiarize themselves with our system of teaching.
