Tuesday Night Tango in Palo Alto

TNTango is BACK!!
After far too long a break from tango due to the corona virus, we will be opening again on Oct 5, 2021. To keep everyone as safe as possible, we will require proof of vaccination and masks. A new series will start in October, but if you paid for the series for March 2020, we will put that towards any series in the next 6 months.
Stay safe and healthy, and we will be dancing again with you soon!!

Argentine Tango

Argentine Tango was born in the late 1800's in Buenos Aires, and has been changing and evolving ever since. It is a beautiful dance form that provides endless opportunity for improvisation and playfulness.

7:00-8:00  Fundamentals- All About Ochos

Introduction to the crossing steps and pivots that are the basis of most moves in tango. This series is ideal for new dancers, or experienced dancers working on fundamentals, or the other role.
