Welcome to Charlottesville Tango!

Charlottesville Tango is social dance club. We are also all-volunteer and not-for-profit . We offer weekly classes, practicas, a regular Saturday night milonga as well as workshops and festivals throughout the year. We love dancing, meeting new friends and sharing with the community.

Check out our calendar and we'll see you on the dance floor!

Our TANGO ON WATER studio is located at 208 E. Water Street.

Community Announcements


Parking in the Water St garage is open 24 hours. It’s is directly above the studio. The first hour is free. Reason to tango on!

We did it!

In 2018 we raised $6,000 for our new Water Street studio. We truly appreciate your help. All donations went directly toward a new wood floor, kitchenette, lighting, sound, paint and window shades. With your help, we've turned our new venue into something beautiful and worth the visit. It really is like dancing Tango on Water.



Every Saturday night, Charlottesville Tango hosts our weekly milonga. Be sure to check the calendar for changes and details.

Milongas are social dances for Argentine tango. They are a great time to dance, try out what you learned in lessons, and meet the greater tango community! 

Cost: $10 for regular milongas. Price includes light refreshments.

Practica is a time to dance, practice, try out new moves, and discuss what works – and what works better! Often, the host, in addition to DJ-ing, will share an idea, movement, or tool/exercise and will be available to answer questions and offer suggestions. This is a great bridge for beginning dancers between classes and milongas, and is a great opportunity for more experienced dancers to share their tips and work on refining their skills.

Charlottesville Tango  offers classes by local instructors on a regular basis for all ranges of experience. See the calendar for upcoming classes!

Calendar of Events


Charlottesville Tango  is striving to provide a growing Argentine Tango community, both in number of participants as well as skill level. Bringing in top-notch instructors for short intensives is one way to present new material and concepts, link to the broader world-wide community, and keep our local community alive and vibrant. These intensives and workshops are often referred to as Festivals in the tango community.
