This site is a calendar for events and classes dedicated to the music and dance of Argentine Tango, in Eugene, Oregon. Come back often!
It is also a celebration of the six-year run of the most extraordinarily public Tango experiment of the 21st century, (outside of Buenos Aires).
New to Argentine Tango?
Over 10,000 people were introduced to Tango through The Tango Center's Introduction to Tango from Zero class, which was every Saturday at 8pm, part of the all-ages, no partner necessary, affordable dance: The Big Milonga (Argentine Tango Social Dance). During its run, it was the largest weekly Milonga in the Northwest. It was certainly the largest Milonga in the US focused on inviting the outside world to come in and participate. It was a unique urban revitalization effort, intended to give the City a dream-like night spot, a place for the whole community, a place where the "audience" was the talent, and people learned to improvise together, through this gentle social dance.
