Tango Revolution is a bi-weekly neighborhood educational project to learn and experience the social aspect of Argentine Tango dance, music and history. It is a program of Intimate Embrace Tango, which envisions Argentine Tango as a relational matrix of connection to ourselves, each other and the world. We organize awareness-and fundraising events around critical issues of our time.

We hope that Tango Revolution is a fertile ground for learning about Argentine Tango, a social dance and music of immigrants, which continues to cross the boundaries of race, culture, language and social status. Where both beginning and accomplished dancers/musicians can share the floor without obvious hierarchy. Where all gender pairings are encouraged and anyone may ask anyone to dance. Where we can find a Tango Embrace as a common language and antidote against the isolation, separation and fearful existence we are led to believe is necessary.

Come watch, listen or join in the dance! All levels and ages are welcome.
