Who Are We?
The Tango Society of Boston
was incorporated in June 1997 as a Massachusetts non-profit organization dedicated
to the support and growth of the Argentine Tango. Within 5 months, it already had
250 members, and the numbers are growing weekly! While there are many facets to
the Argentine Tango—the music and the culture being among the most prominent—it
is the dance that brings most of us together. The Tango is a social and participant’s
dance and is for everyone to learn and enjoy, regardless of dance background! Our
membership has people from all walks of life, and has probably 20 or more countries
What Do We Do?
We are not just a paper organization!
Our numerous activities fall into two broad categories:
1. Planning Tango events
2. Supporting the growth
of the Tango community
- Weekly Wednesday evening
Tango dances at 16 Bow St, Union Sq, Somerville open to all, with a 1-hour lesson
at the beginning
- Weekend Tango seminars
several times a year with the best Tango teachers in the world (usually from Argentina),
such as the one with the renowned Daniela Arcuri, planned for July 2009.
- Milongas (Tango dance
socials), some with live music
- Special and unusual Tango
events such as outdoor “Tango by Moonlight” nights in summer
