We were planning to run just one annual Challenge,
but with the need for home training during the time of Distance,
we are offering a second Episode.

If you need structure, regularity, and community,
we invite you to join the MasterCourse Challenge 2020: Episode II.

TangoForge didn’t start online education in March of 2020. We’ve been building our Digital School since 2014

The MasterCourse is all the technique and variations of the 25 Elements of tango presented in 16 video sessions. Generally, we offer the MasterCourse for an 18 month enrollment and students work at their own pace.

NOW we offer an intensive challenge: do the MasterCourse in sync with other dancers and in group dialogue with Vio in 16 weeks.

For ambitious students who are ready to take responsibility for their tango education, the Challenge will give you a complete overview of tango and how the Elements relate to one another. Every session will include a forum with questions and Vio will answer every question for everyone to see.

Every Friday you will get access to one video session of the MasterCourse.

To motivate you to keep up while giving flexibility to anticipate busy weeks, each session will remain visible for TWO weeks.

At the end of the Challenge students may choose to take our online Exam. The Exam is the first step toward TangoForge Teacher Certification, a program we will launch mid-2020. (Current MasterCourse students will also have the opportunity to take the Exam.)

As always we will allow students who have enrolled in any of our programs to upgrade to the full Digital School enrollment which includes the MasterCourse and all of our materials and live classes for 18 months. So if you decide you want to continue studying the MasterCourse after the Challenge, you just pay the difference.

The usual Master Course price of €479 gives students instant and ongoing access to all MasterCourse sessions, complimented by our Exercise Center, KnowledgeBase, and Home Practice Courses, for 18 months. 

During the Challenge you have access to the MasterCourse (in EN and DE). To keep you on track, one session is released each week, and you have access to each one for two weeks. You also have access to the KnowledgeBase Hyperlinked Reference Encyclopedia.

Since we are all doing it together, each session has a forum for discussion and questions, and Vio answers every question so all can see. Episode II students will have access to the Q&A for Episode I.

The challenge is for ambitious students who need structure and time pressure or who want a more affordable option. 

The challenge also includes a forum in which all students can participate and read the questions and answers for each session. 

And instead of the usual MasterCourse price of €479,
the Challenge is just €160…
that’s €10 per session

The Challenge 2020.II starts on 5.June and ends on 25.September.

Enrollment is limited to 30 students.

25 Elements in 16 sessions over 16 weeks for €160.
