VANTANGO COMING SOON!

Our goal is to expand our tango community by introducing new dancers to this engaging dance and provide a post-Covid tango experience for tango community members who have been anxiously awaiting a chance to dance again.

Rather than importing teachers for our first festival, we have decided to feature the skills and talents of some Vancouver’s finest and most experienced tango teachers. Our featured teachers are a combination of excellent dancers, lauded performers, and experienced teachers. They are invested in the quality and growth of our local tango community and truly want to improve the dance skills of their students.

Our teachers will be attending the milonga to dance with people, and talk about tango traditions and music. Vantango promises to be a total tango experience!
