Argentine Tango Classes in Sacramento

Tango is so much more than some moves or steps. Tango is connection: connection with your partner, with the music, with the floor itself, and with the other dancers on the floor. In this rather sterile world we live in (where an accidental touch often results in an apology), Tango connects us. At Tango by the River, we delight in this connection. We dance and teach close embrace tango ... and we invite you to step in, get close, and get connected. We invite you to Tango ...


The online classes run from 5:00-6:00 pm (Pacific Standard Time) every Tuesday & Thursday.  The online classes are done live via Zoom, and the Zoom link will be sent to you by private message with edited video recordings of each class will be sent next day after each class for all the participants. For online classes, please make a donation with the Donate link below.

  • Suggested minimum donation for one class - $ 15 USD*

  • Suggested minimum monthly donation (6-8 classes) - $ 50 USD*

*This amount is only a suggestion. If it is too much for you at these times, we understand. Feel free to donate what you feel comfortable with. If you can do more, we would very much appreciate it. THANK YOU! GRACIAS!
