A glimpse at why many of us fall in love with tango:
Yale Tango Club meets Sunday nights to dance Argentine tango and socialize. During the academic year, we offer weekly classes as well as occasional Sunday workshops taught by famous traveling teachers from all over the U.S., Canada, Argentina and Europe. We host a monthly milonga, Milonga Azul, with well-known DJs from around the world on the 4th Saturday of most months (typically between September and May), and we have weekly guided practicas after class on Thursday nights. We don’t compete, we dance to have fun and because many of us are obsessed. To participate in our club, you need to learn the basics of Argentine Tango, so we offer beginners class and bootcamps to get total beginners on the dance floor!
Argentine tango is a social dance. It is an improvised dance that works through the connection with your partner and the music. It is not an easy dance to learn, but our weekly classes, special bootcamps and workshops are designed to prepare you for the social dance floor so that you will be able to connect and be able to enjoyably dance with another person!
Classes and events are open to Yale students, postdocs, and to the broader public. No partner or dance experience required! In our club it is normal for women who are interested in leading, and men who are interested in learning to follow, to learn those roles.
Join us for our last Yale Tango Fest, April 7-9, 2017. For more information and to register click here!
