Cleveland Tango

Welcome! Here’s a bit about us and what we do:

Tango is a social dance originally from Argentina and Uruguay; it began as a mixture of music styles from several different cultures coming together for the first time. The music and movements that came out of this hotbed of creative experimentation have proven to last for almost (or in some cases longer than) a hundred years now.

The dance, too, has evolved over those years (almost even vanishing at one point!); drawing from other dance styles like ballet and contemporary, now a large focus for dancers is how to do this as enjoyably as possible for as long as possible. This is a very exciting time to be involved with tango, especially here at The Cleveland Tango School where the goal is: Healthy Bodies, Creative Minds, Great Hugs

The Cleveland Tango School has been effectively closed while everyone is experiencing this global health crisis, but we never stopped training and working on this business. Now we are very carefully starting to rebuild a healthy and sustainable community of dancers here in town.

If you’re interested in supporting or participating in what we do please consider one of these options! And thank you for helping two working artists continue to create something beautiful in this world ♥️

–> Buy us a coffee! If you’re not comfortable dancing right now, or don’t live in Cleveland, you can still help support what we’re trying to build with the school. Anything is appreciated, if you have enough to give, and we now have three subscription levels with different ways to get engaged with us!

–> Join our classes! Currently we’re offering classes on Tuesdays at Viva Dance, two levels of instruction from 7-9pm with no experience or partner needed to get started. Progressive cycles start the first Tuesday of every month and discounts available for multiple classes or both levels!

–> Come for our events! We’ve been hosting parties again, at beautiful Forest City Brewery, and excited to get back into the groove of being out for a night of dancing. Every first Wednesday, 2135 Columbus Road and at our new venue for Third Wednesdays Kaiser Gallery in Tremont, 2418 Professor Ave. 7-10pm, $12, monthly guest performers.

–> Sign up for the mailing list below to stay updated about what we’re doing currently and how we plan to keep growing as artists and artisans of this tremendous dance.
