New! The Micro-Challenge
We know a lot of community organizers need more ways to build enough of a critical mass to be able to offer the Tango Challenge or a similar program. So we are developing the Micro Challenge, a very lightweight program to support more peer-to-peer connecting and practice for groups of as small as 4 students, for as few as 6 weeks! Take a peek
What is the cost of offering the Tango Challenge?
You set a price for the Tango Challenge that covers the cost of offering the program and feels great to you.
We will work together to set up a licensing arrangement for use of the Tango Challenge materials that works for you given your circumstances.
We want this to be a financial success for you. Past facilitators have been able to make good money offering the Tango Challenge!
The Tango Challenge is a registered trademark. Our objective is to support the growth of tango, while protecting our ability to keep developing programs and innovations.
What if I want to build on the Tango Challenge concept so it fits my community better?
YES! We want you to do that!! While the Tango Challenge program is something we feel confident you can use right out-of-the-box, we encourage you to create and test out your own variations on the material, whenever you have the inspiration and bandwidth, based on your creativity and your unique community's needs! And, you can share what you discover with the growing community of facilitators. Your license will allow you to create your own derivative works based on the materials we share with you.
