Leonel wrote to us:

"What we teach in class is always the base of tango; wlaking, el embrace, musicality the pause... What is more important for us is the connection between the couple. Only when the level of the students is adequate we add steps like turns, boleos, enrosques and so on. For all class levels, and for each class (not on ly technical class) we do a warm-up wihout shoes."

So be prepared for real work!
