Welcome to Charlottesville Tango!
We are an all volunteer, non-profit community of Argentine Tango dancers who participate because we love the dance. We also exist to promote Argentine Tango and to that end we offer classes, sponsor Milongas and practicas, and present workshops and festivals at various times throughout the year. We'll see you on the dance floor!
Our weekly milonga at our new TANGO ON WATER studio begins in July!
Join us for our soft opening July 7 at 208 E Water Street, beginning at 9 pm. We've been cleaning, painting and installing floors, fixtures, mirrors and equipment, and having fun putting this new community studio together for all of us. Looking forward to celebrating its beginnings with you! We'll continue to work on the studio in the coming months as we prepare for a Grand Opening in September. Check our Facebook page for updates and visit our GoFundMe site to contribute to our community efforts.
It's official, we are moving!
With our historic Glass Building scheduled for renovation, Charlottesville Tango has been in search of a new home. Our new location, TANGO ON WATER, is just around the corner on – you guessed it – E. Water Street. The space is a bare storefront, and we need $6,000 to make it usable and inviting for milongas by July!
We’re installing a new floor and kitchenette and adding lights, window shades, and sound. We’re doing all this work ourselves and ask you, our tango friends near and far, to help with whatever donation you can. If you love tango or love someone who loves it, consider participating in our community effort to create a new social space where all tangueros can find a home.
Visit our GOFUNDME site at https://www.gofundme.com/charlottesvilletango. Thanks to generous private donations, we’re almost halfway to our goal! Help us be ready for a July 7 soft-opening of TANGO ON WATER.
And please spread the word!
Big Move in progress:
Check out the journey of our mirrors making their way Downtown to their new home!
A new floor and lighting are installed. We're still raising funds for a kitchenette, window shades and a few other essentials. If you've considered donating and haven't visted our GoFundMe page, here's the link:
We thank you for all the different kinds of support we've received. Keep checking Facebook and our website for more updates!
Join us this Saturday for the last milonga in our old and "bare naked" studio, and save the date for a soft opening July 7!
