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!

Community Announcements


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!




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! 

Upcoming Milonga Schedule

"Hosted by TBA" indicates we are looking for a Volunteer Host! 


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.

Practica Dress code: Casual

Upcoming Practica Schedule


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

Upcoming Classes Schedule


Charlottesville Tango  is striving to provide a growing Argentinte Tango community, both in number of participants as well as skill level. Bringing in top-notch instuctors 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.

Upcoming Festival Schedule


Occasionally Charlottesville Tango will have guest teachers visit our studio to provide classes with a particular focus in tango. Check below for any upcoming workshops that we have planned.
