Come as you are and discover the subtle and elegant dance of tango in the company of friends and allies. In Queer Tango you will explore both roles as leader and as follower. This allows everyone to appreciate both sides of the partnership and help foster your unique and authentic tango expression.
“Great techniques used to socialize while learning to tango...cool instructors!” -LaSaan
We will play fun games to meet and connect with other workshop participants as we learn to tango. This workshop will prepare you to dance tango at the numerous venues and events in Austin.
Corazon Tanguero “made me fall in love with this dance in just the first hour! His passion for it is evident! Highly recommended.” -Victor
In addition to all the tango fun, Austin Queer Tango will provide a tango photo booth to make this workshop a true celebration of learning :)
All classes and events are open and affirming. We welcome all genders and sexual identities
“Very welcoming and inclusive! They love to share this dance with all and all are welcome” -Michele
No partner necessary and no experience required. Come with two left feet! We will have several right feet and are waiting for you!
Leather soled shoes recommended. We will pivot on the dance floor, so wear shoes that are secure on the feet and don’t grip the floor. Socks without shoes can substitute.
