Tango is not only a dance or a type of music, tango is culture. The culture of Tango is embodied by people with a common geography and shared history. Many of these cultural aspects transcend frontiers, and our music, folkloric dances and cuisine have gained ample, worldwide recognition.
The mission of the Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires is to preserve the art of Tango in its full form. Acknowledging that our folklore and our cuisine are intrinsic elements of the people that shaped and preserve the identity of Tango, we are proud to offer the San Francisco Bay Area direct access to these other dimensions of Tango culture: Live Argentine folk music and dance demonstrations, and the tasty dishes that characterize our cuisine.
