Argentine Tango Classes in Sacramento

Covid-19 Update, May 6, 2021:

From the Covid19.ca.gov website: "California aims to fully reopen June 15. The move forward comes as the state has reached 20 million vaccinations, including 4 million in its hardest-hit communities. Masking and vaccinations will continue. Hospitalization rates must stay low and vaccination availability high for the state to fully reopen." As of April 15, 2021, Sacramento County is allowed to have up to 50 people indoors as long as hospitalization rates remain low. 

  • Couples only -- couples must register together and dance together; switching partners is prohibited.

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 ...
