About the website
We try to promote tango as it is danced in Argentina, and we maintain close ties with that country. Tango masters from Argentina are regularly invited to teach workshops in Vancouver, and many of our dancers make repeated trips to Buenos Aires.
Regular milongas are held at a number of venues.
Please consult the Calendar for details.
“Cabeza” means “head” in Spanish, and “cabeceo” is the castellano word that refers to the nod of the head that is used to signal the offer and acceptance of dances at a milonga. A crowded milonga simply couldn’t function without it. Hundreds of offers and acceptances must fly back and forth across the room each time a new tanda of music begins, and the cabeceo is really the only practical way for everyone to quickly and efficiently find the right partner.

In 1998, 8 people got together and created the first tango practica in Vancouver, run by Claude and Hazel Esposito. Since then the community has grown immensely and there is a wide array of milongas, practicas, and workshops to keep you dancing every day of the week.
