Here is a list of potential questions you might have about Tangomeet, and the answers to them. In case you didn’t find what you were looking for, don’t hesitate to contact us, using the chat in the lower right corner of the screen.

 

What is Tangomeet?


Learning with your favorite maestros week by week, in the comfort of your own space. Be it your home, dance studio, or any other private space you can imagine.

Tangomeet is a service that allows tango lovers from all over the world to have personal access to international tango maestros, through a series of online lessons and videos with their personal insights and discoveries in tango. We believe it is one of the biggest leaps forward in learning tango because it is convenient, fast and most importantly truly rich in information (philosophy, technique, steps, and figures).

When we say fast, we don’t mean that you will learn Argentine tango in a few days because tango is like a good wine – the longer time goes by, the better it becomes. Also, succeeding in this learning process is up to you and the time you spend practicing what your maestros teach you.

What we mean by fast is that it’s as simple as switching on your computer, logging into your Tangomeet.com account, then watching and re-watching the video classes, and practicing them in the intimacy of your own space.

 

Watch, re-watch. Just as long as you need...

 

Another thing that you are really going to be excited about is that on Tangomeet, unlike the offline workshops, not only can you watch and practice the classes, but you can also re-watch them over and over again, as long as you need. Play, pause, rewind, play again – your learning process is under your own control.

 

Anytime, anywhere, so comfortable, instant lifestream access…. And lessons are yours forever.

 

And because it’s online, after buying any collections of online lessons, you can access your lessons, in your Tangomeet account, immediately after the payment process is complete. You don't need to wait for delivery, like in the case of a physical DVD. The lessons can't be downloaded. But, they are yours forever. You have lifetime streaming access to your lessons anywhere you have an Internet connection, so you can choose your class location or the time you are going to watch, learn and practice. This approach will allow you to have a more flexible schedule, save time and money. It’s the learning method that adapts to you and not vice versa. 

 

How can I actually start learning?

 

First, you have to become a Tangomeet member by creating an account on our website. Upon signing up, you’ll find in your personal library, a few gift lessons, specially designed for you to taste the Tangomeet learning experience.
In order to immerse yourself into the complete Tangomeet learning experience, you can buy the available collections of lessons. By buying the collections of lessons, you’ll have instant access to all the lessons that the collection you have purchased contains.

 

Are the Tangomeet lessons worth it?

 

We wouldn't invest all our passion and resources in Tangomeet if we didn't strongly believe that this product is worth it.
At a first glance, it might feel like it's expensive, but at a deeper analysis, one realizes that the cost of a collection is actually much lower than what you pay for regular workshops, in the end.

 

Why is that?

 

Yes, you buy the lessons in collections/bundles of lessons, paying a few lessons at a time, but if you make a calculation the cost of one lesson inside a Tangomeet collection is 8.35 euro (exclusive VAT), with very few exceptions. So it's roughly 8 euro, which is much less than an offline lesson with these outstanding teachers. The quantity of information you get from one of our lessons is approximately equal to what you get in an offline lesson. Many times you get even more details and in-depth information on Tangomeet, it's just that the information is concentrated, that is why a Tangomeet lesson is shorter than an offline lesson. Of course, in an offline lesson, you get the human touch and interaction with the maestros, and that is worth so much, that is why you pay more for it. In the Tangomeet online lessons, you get the opportunity to watch and re-watch their explanations as many times as you need, a thing that you can't do in an offline lesson. And unfortunately, we're human beings, we forget and we need to constantly refresh our knowledge. And not just because we forget, but also because our understanding and the revelations that we have from listening and watching the same material is changing as we evolve on our tango journey. That's precisely why, we don't have levels for our lessons, each person will take away what is right for them at the moment they are watching and practicing the lessons.
We strongly recommend that you attend offline lessons and workshops as well. The ideal scenario according to us, is attending offline group and/or private lessons when you have the opportunity to meet these teachers, and constantly learn new things, review their teaching and practice your tango, with the Tangomeet online lessons.

 

What is the level of the tango classes that are available on Tangomeet?

 

All the teachers have an incremental approach. A certain topic will be presented starting with the basic knowledge, until reaching the advanced level. It means that lessons are suitable for everyone and they cover a very large spectrum of your studying process, starting from fundamental concepts to more sophisticated techniques. This is an approach that is very useful as even the lessons presenting the basic tango concepts are extremely valued by our members who are advanced dancers, local teachers included, as the way you perceive the same lesson, or the same material, differs according to each dancer's level. A more advanced dancer can see details and subtleties that a beginning dancer might not catch.

We kindly recommend you start with the basic information, which you’ll discover in the lessons on fundamental concepts, as every couple of maestros have their own philosophy and technique upon which they build their style of dancing.

If you are a dancer with less than 6 months of tango practice (classes/ workshops/ milongas/ practicas), you will have the chance to learn not only from your local teachers but also from international maestros.

If you are a dancer with at least 6 months of tango practice (classes/ workshops/ milongas/ practicas), you will substantially improve your dance level, having the chance to make a good check on your fundamentals and discover new subtle details you might have missed.

If you are an advanced dancer or teacher you can discover new subtle details and make substantial leaps in the quality of your dance, and/or improve your teaching method.

 

Do you offer any self-study strategies?

 

The entire learning material has been created for dancers who are going to study on their own, in front of their computers, in the comfort of their own homes, practice rooms or other types of private spaces. And as our members confirmed, it seems to work, just as we have intended. Which is really great news for everyone involved!

 

How much time should I spend learning for each video lesson?

 

We recommend from 1.5 to 2 hours of practice for each lesson. Then, keep applying what you have learned in milongas and not only you but also your dance partners will notice the beautiful evolution of your dance. We suspect compliments will start pouring.

 

Can I ask for feedback or discuss a situation that might appear in my learning/teaching process?

 

Yes, definitely. Please, contact us using the little chat situated in the right down corner of your screen. We’ll get back to you by email. We’re considering all your questions and feedback when producing a new set of lessons, so hearing from you is always a pleasure for us.

We’re also occasionally organizing live webinars, where you can listen to the maestros talking, interact with them and ask your questions. We notify all our members about future webinars by email. Also, follow us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/tangomeet) for important announcements.

 

What about the prices of the Tangomeet lessons?

 

All our lessons have a unique price per unit, no matter the maestros that teach them. The prices for collections are set in a cumulative manner that is, the number of lessons contained multiplied by the price per unit. We have set the prices taking into account various factors like costs of production, prices of offline workshops, and others, trying to keep them as affordable as possible.

For certain geographical areas, like EU, additional due amounts might apply, as VAT or sales taxes, for individuals. These amounts are not ours to be used, we will be submitting them to your local tax authorities.

 

What happens if I delete my account on Tangomeet, will I still have access to the content I have paid for?

 

All the content you have paid for previously, either by buying prime memberships or collections of lessons, will be available to you as long as you are a registered member of Tangomeet, that is you have an account on our website to which you can log in, using your email and password you have chosen.

We would rather want you to stay, but in case you decide to leave us for whatever reason, you have the option of permanently deleting your Tangomeet account. Note though that by permanently deleting your Tangomeet account, you will cause loss of all content you have ever paid for. Nevertheless, if you still want to delete it permanently, therefore not to be able to ever activate it again, please, contact us and we will perform this action for you. You are solely responsible for deleting your Tangomeet account.
