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.
