Private and Semi-Private group lessons available by request

For those new to the tango, private lessons can be an excellent way to get comfortable with the fundamentals of tango before you join a group lesson or begin dancing tango socially. For those with a little more tango experience who perhaps are currently studying tango in group lessons, private lessons can be an excellent way to work on specific problem areas or to make sure that bad habits are recognized and stopped before they become ingrained. And for those more intermediate/advanced dancers, private lessons can be an excellent way to further refine your tango and perhaps even develop your performance skills. Private lessons offer a learning pace that is tuned to you in particular, which usually means a slightly accelerated learning pace over group classes. Private lessons are good for feeling what an excellent partner should feel like, because you get to dance directly with the instructor, who, in theory anyway, is pretty good at this stuff. Private lessons are also good for being coached on what you should feel like, since the instructor can give you feedback on a moment-to-moment basis.

One-on-One: Private Lessons with both Brett and Jennifer
A great way to learn for either a leader or follower.

For a Couple: Private Lessons with both Brett and Jennifer

Private Lessons either Brett or Jennifer
If you would like to work soley on leading technies (i.e. a leader working with Brett) or followers techniques (i.e. afollower working with Jennifer) this is a great option. While these lessons are slightly less expensive than working with both Brett and Jennifer together, they cannot supply the same depth of teaching and dance experience as working with both an experieced lead and follower. Leaders working only with Jennifer wil not gain the valuable insight and knowledge that can be obtained by working with an experienced leader, and vice versa in the case of a follower dancing with soley with Brett.

Single 1 hour class: $65
Package of 10 classes: $550
($100 discount)
