Tango Revolution is a weekly neighborhood educational project to offer anyone the opportunity to learn and experience the social aspect of Argentine Tango dance, music and history. By holding the event in an accessible café on a Sunday afternoon we encourage the spontaneous inclusion of music and dance in our everyday life as a communal experience.

Tango Revolution 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 classes,workshops, cultural, social awareness-and fundraising events around critical issues of our time.

Come take a beginning Tango class or practice your dance in a relaxing, non-intimidating atmosphere. Non-dancers can watch the moves and immerse themselves in the beautiful Tango music. We extend an open invitation to aspiring Tango musicians to jam together and practice their skills with the dancers in a receptive and energetic environment.

We hope that Tango Revolution is a fertile ground for learning about Argentine Tango, a dance and music of immigrants, which continues to cross the boundaries of race, culture, language and social status. Where both beginning and accomplished dancers and musicians can share the floor without obvious hierarchy. Where all gender pairings are encouraged and anyone may ask anyone to dance.

We offer the beautiful connection between human beings in the Tango Embrace as a common ground and antidote against the isolation, separation and fearful existence we are led to believe is necessary. What better way to come home to ourselves and to connect with each other across our differences than the non-verbal power of a musical and dance embrace, listening and moving together as one?

Come watch, listen or join in the dance! All levels and ages are welcome. No partner or dance experience necessary.
