Level 1B can be accessed after having had about 10 tango classes. The classes are taught by assistants who have been trained by Marisa & Oliver.
New steps and figures are mixed with the already known material, so that participants can build up a repertoire. Movements such as the boleo, gancho, barrida, rebote, and various adornos enrich the repertoire.
Gradually, the dancers develop at an individual level and start to create their own style and repertoire. The tango becomes really interesting because the dancers have enough tools to start improvising.
As of this level, in each series the vals porteño and the milonga are also introduced.
