Tango Anyone??? – Tango Society of Boston, Inc. (Weekly Dances Every Wednesday Evening)
The Tango Society of Boston, Inc. is a true local advocate of the Argentine Tango. They have been steadily promoting this dance genre since 1997 and are proudly accepting large numbers of new members to the organization on a regular basis. They recruit members with all levels of dance experience from the most advanced to the total beginner and are proud of the diversity of backgrounds which their membership represents. The Wednesday night weekly dance parties include 1 hour of instruction at the beginning of the event, so there’s no reason to be shy, even if you’ve never before done the tango in your entire life! Aside from these dances, the society also regularly holds a “special” event on the third weekend of every month. Some of the dance events take the form of milongas (Tango socials) and may include live music while others are varied in structure, often very creative and innovative. The society also offers classes, workshops and seminars. Seminars are given mostly by Argentinean instructors, many of whom are internationally renowned.
