Who Are We?

The Stanford Tango Club is a student-run non-profit organization that is dedicated to building and sustaining an open community of Argentine Tango dancers.  We strive to promote Argentine Tango as an evolving global social dance and art form rooted in tradition.  Our activities include classes, practicas (practice sessions), milongas (tango dance parties), workshops, and outings.

Come out and dance with us at one of our events, and feel free to contact us for further information.

What Do We Do?

Our Classes: We bring some of the best Tango instructors in and beyond the Bay Area to teach two levels of classes every quarter. We usually hold progressive class series for 6-8 weeks each quarter.

Our Practicas: Every week, we have free practicas open to everybody taking the classes and also to others willing to assist and enjoy the company of others in their quest to learn Tango. Sometimes, we hold a short 1-hr guided practice taught by STC members and other Tango Community members. This is followed by a practilonga (practica + milonga = practilonga), in which the dance floor is opened up for social dancing and continued practice.

Our Outings: Occasionally, we organize trips to other local tango venues for everyone to experience dancing Tango outside of a class setting. Some of our favorite spots include El Valenciano, Cellspace, The Beat & La Pista.
