Today’s #Tango Thought 077: Tango Cities.
Today’s Tango Thought covers a labor of Tantalus … where is Tango danced and in what cities ? What follows is by no means an exhaustive list of places where tango is danced, it only scratches the surface.
At one point in time or another there has been a concerted directive to classify, and qualify, and quantify the number of cities/places where Tango is danced, where you can get information (because you’re traveling near there and want to know if there’s dancing), or who or where you can study to learn how (smart idea). However a global tango information resource seems like a dream, there have been many, many efforts to do just that. And each of them has failed for any one of a variety of reasons. 🙁 That’s not to say that it isn’t possible, it’s to say that it’s insanely difficult to keep after because of the shear volume of data that has to happen. It can happen with a little crowd sourcing and someone to direct the effort. 😉
Below are facebook group links of the city name where tango is happening. Click the link, got to the group, subscribe, and ask your question….
This list will be updated as time goes by, so check back, and share this post with everyone you know. Also If you are a facebook page organizer for a particular city that’s not on this list, please comment below with a link to your page and city name. Thanks.
Two notes: 1.) Some cities have multiple groups, the ones with the largest group of members was chosen. 2.) If there is a city review here on Tango Topics, the link will go to the city review AND the city’s facebook page will be listed at the bottom of the review.
