Welcome to Charlottesville Tango!
We are an all volunteer, non-profit social community of Argentine Tango dancer 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!
Join us for Anna’s tango lessons on Thursday nights!
PARKING GARAGE CHANGES!
Are you aware of this? Charlottesville makes changes to downtown parking garages, including keeping them open for 24 hours a day.www.cbs19news.com
This means that people leaving the garage after 1am (Thursday-Saturday) get free parking. Reason to tango on, night owls. The first hour is free! They're also having more security late at night.
