About Tango Revolution:
Tango Revolution is a neighborhood project to offer anyone the opportunity to learn and experience the social aspect of Argentine Tango: a dance and music of immigrants which continues to cross the boundaries of race, culture, language and social status. By regularly holding the event free of charge in accessible places such as cafés and community centers we encourage the spontaneous inclusion of music and dance in our everyday life as a communal experience. Where both beginning and accomplished dancers and musicians can share the floor without obvious hierarchy.
The Tango Revolution project began in late November 2005 at Café Revolution in SF’s Mission District and after using several venues, found a home at Caffe Trieste Downtown from 2007-2012. Since September 2012 we are proud to have started Tango Revolution Telegraph at the historic Café Mediterraneum in Berkeley.
Part of the project includes giving young musicians from high schools, community music schools, conservatories and universities the opportunity to learn and perform traditional Argentine Tango music as well as Piazzolla’s Nuevo Tango. Professional Tango musicians are also eager to perform at our Milonga.
We are currently looking for another permanent location in SF.
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?
