What is the Micro Challenge?
The Micro Challenge is a bridge program that helps organizers of small-to-medium-sized communities and campus clubs engage learners in deepening their practice — and prepare to offer the Tango Challenge within the next 2-3 years.
Super easy, lightweight retention and engagement strategy facilitating fun practice between community members! It even works for beginners.
How it works:
You facilitate your promising learners to partner with one another for focused practice once a week for six weeks.
Learners engage and investigate Tango material more deeply, which helps them develop skill and satisfaction
They come to and actively participate in practicas - instead of skipping, or awkwardly sitting out
Learners deepen their relationships with one another, which makes them more likely to stick with Tango!
You strengthen learners’ engagement and retention with very little effort or administration
You and your community will get closer to being able to offer a full Tango Challenge!
You get the use of the practice partner facilitation app :) currently in beta testing.
What you’ll need
A small cohort of learners - a minimum of 4
Ideally this will be offered during or right after a beginner series
A six week time frame is recommended
You’ll need a local practica where participants can meet to practice
Optional: links to tips suggesting what/how to practice (you can also draw from a library we’ve been compiling!)
