Tango Colorado was founded in 1996, about a year after the first local dancers began to learn this incredible dance, Argentine Tango. Members numbered about 30 dancers. Today we have over 500 active members all over the state and more than 800 subscribe to our mailing lists. There are dances (called milongas) and practice sessions (called practicas) in Denver, Boulder, Ft. Collins, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, Aspen and other Colorado cities and towns.
We are one of the oldest Tango groups in the country, as well as one of the five largest and most active in the United States. Our goal is to grow this passion through classes, through neutral support of our wonderful member teachers, musicians, DJs and through performances around the region. This is not the “ballroom” dance that you see on TV dance competitions or that is taught at most commercial dance studios. This is the authentic Tango from Argentina, which is rarely seen competitively as it is generally danced socially.
