At current stage, Yale Tango Club welcomes all current Yale undergraduate, graduate, postdocs, students, staff and faculty.
Yale Tango Club meets Sunday nights to dance Argentine tango and socialize. During the academic year, we offer weekly classes as well as occasional workshops taught by famous traveling teachers from all over the U.S., Canada, Argentina and Europe. We also have weekly guided practicas after class on Wednesday nights. We don’t compete, we dance to have fun and because many of us are obsessed. During the summer, we gather to dance outdoors at Broadway on Thursdays. To participate in our club more, 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 only open to Yale students, staff and faculty. No partner or dance experience required! It is normal for both women and men to engage in both follower and leader roles of argentine tango.
