Tango Revolution is a weekly neighborhood project to offer anyone the opportunity to learn and experience the social aspect of Argentine Tango dance, music and history. By holding the event free of charge 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.

Part of the project includes giving young musicians the opportunity to learn and perform traditional Argentine Tango music as well as Piazzolla’s Nuevo Tango. They receive coaching sessions by professional Tango musicians from Argentina and the USA and perform regularly at Caffe Trieste Downtown and other special events in the Bay Area.

The Tango Revolution project began in 2005 at Café Revolution in SF’s Mission District. Its success has inspired other musical groups such as Classical Revolution to adopt the idea, the name and the practice. The Tango quartet Tangonero has its origins at Tango Revolution as well as several other musicians now playing Tango in the Bay Area.

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 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 connect with each other across our differences than the non-verbal power of a musical and dance embrace, listening and moving together as one?
