Drop-in Restrictions (Fundamentals Only) for Felipe’s Series

As you know, beginner classes with Felipe and Ayano have been full, and unfortunately our room for the rest of the quarter is smaller than the ones we’ve been using thus far. Normally, we see attendance drop-off, but instead our numbers have been increasing – a credit to our amazing teachers! We would like to give you a great learning experience, while at the same time being fair to people that would like to take classes. To that end, we’re going to make a few changes starting this week.

Fundamentals Series: due to the size of the class, we are capping the number of drop-ins. If you would like to drop-in for Oct 22 class, please RSVP at stanfordtangoclub@gmail.com to save a spot, and include whether you lead or follow (we will aim for role balance). You must email prior to 5p on Wednesday to RSVP. If you show up at the door and our capacity is reached, we will turn you away. However, if you have already taken a beginner class and would like to register for the series, please e-mail us stanfordtangoclub@gmail.com . We’ll do our best to make it possible for you to join.

Intermediate Series: no restrictions on drop-ins at this time

If you have questions or a special situation, feel free to write us at stanfordtangoclub@gmail.com . We’ll do what we can to try and help!
