HOW TO REGISTER?
Please note that you have to mark separately every lesson and milonga you plan to attend - even the ones with free entrance, as for organisation we need to know how many people we have to fit in one place.
If you are sure that you understood the prices (workshops, milongas) correctly you may transfer the exact amount to EE061010220080300011. Still, you may also wait for our reply, which may take some days.
WHAT IS MY LEVEL / who is my partner?
Please look here: http://www.tangoporttallinn.com/programme/workshops
We do not require any level for those who attend the beginners' lessons B2 B4 B6 and/or tecnique lessons M1 M2 N1 N2.
For the rest of lessons, please note what the teachers have proposed:
(Int/Adv) - for intermediate and advanced level
(Adv) - for advanced level
(ALL) - for all levels
As we are not able to categorise you strictly to any level, please try to assess you capabilities by yourself and as adequately as possible.
If you come with a partner with whom you have been dancing - it would be the best option as in this case you do not have to describe your level to us and generally it is your task to make sure that you are happy with the level and the partner.
If you want us to find you a partner, hurry up an describe your level in the registration form (as precisely as possbile) and we will give you the e-mail address of your potential partner who seems to fit you by the description and with whom you can clear out if your level, height etc. fits.
You can see the partners that we recommend you at the Partners' seach table after your registration is made.
