Tango Advocacy

TangoForge Apprenticeship

We offer two programs for your development as a tango community-builder.

The Advocacy Program is for dancers of all levels who want to be effective and responsible advocates for tango, to grow your local community.

The Apprenticeship is a training program for dancers who want to become regular teachers and organizers.

The programs are sequential. In order to become an Apprentice, you first must complete the Advocacy Program.
