Queer Tango in September

As we enter the fall, a bit of tango !

We take to zoom, our portal to meet, greet, find our tango legs and hearts, and connect with our dance community. We have some events created with you in mind dear one!

Full details below, these are the highlights!

Our Sunday virtual queer tango classes welcome Augusto LaMarshall on September 6. The godfather of queer tango joins us from Buenos Aires. Our very own Mira Barakat, shows us how resilient tango can be, and she returns to teach September 13, 20 and 27th.

Live performances take center stage at Abrazo, the virtual queer milonga on September 19th:

What do we do with the money: We pay our teachers and performers, donate to queer tango teachers around the globe, and pay our monthly expenses.

Wherever you are in the world, we invite you to come dance with us.

Long live queer tango!
