Read the registration & Levels  policy below.
 Registration Policies:  Gender balance will be maintained within 2 in either direction. Beyond that balance, single registrants  are held on a wait list until  another single signs -up  in the corresponding /opposite role. If you are role-dextrous (can lead or follow), please indicate your willingness to switch roles, as required.  If you are registering with a partner, not your S/O, your registration is confirmed when both parties’ registrations are received.
 Levels Concept: Tangonova would like the Halifax tango community to benefit as fully as possible from the wisdom and stimulation of our guest teachers. Hence we will attempt to accommodate a mixture of levels, while also ensuring that the more advanced dancers ARE challenged and inspired.  If you are traveling a distance for this weekend,  you may want to attend classes above your level,  and this is fine,  provided you are partnered and not planning to rotate. Any questions about levels, best to talk to Tangonova.

BIO: Andrea and Wolf both grew up immersed in dance, and each has been dancing tango for about 20 years. They met – through tango – in 2003, immediately began teaching together and opened their own school five years later. They are regularly invited to perform at events in and around the city and have created, produced and directed a series of shows in recent years titled Historias de Tango. Over the past decade they have become known for the passion they convey when they dance, the quality of their teaching and the warm, inclusive atmosphere at their milongas. Wolf is especially known for his strong lead and deep understanding of posture and movement and Andrea for her creative, intuitive DJing as well as for her blog, lifeisatango.blogspot.com.
