Beginners’ Tango Bootcamp

We will have a Tango bootcamp weekend on Sept 11 & Sept 12!

You are at the right place if  –

1. you are interested in learning more about Argentine tango dancing 

2. want to get to know more fellow students who are also interested in Argentine tango 

3. want to socialize and get to know more people within the Yale community

Perfect for absolute beginners to learn Argentine Tango dancing and culture. You will get to experience both roles; lead and follow.


No experience necessary. No partners needed.

The Beginner Bootcamp will be taught by Robin Thomas, one of the most respected and influential teachers of Argentine Tango in the United States.

Robin teaches what is universal in tango regardless of style - musicality, connection, good floor craft and simple moves that work on crowded dance floors. He’s helped complete beginners with two-left feet to experienced dancers.

Bring your friends - everyone within the Yale community is invited at our beginner friendly bootcamp.
