Edinburgh Tango Society

Tango, the sophisticated and sensual dance from Argentina, is increasing in popularity in Scotland and Edinburgh. Argentine tango is the ultimate, intimate partner dance. It is not the ballroom tango of 'Come Dancing', but an improvised social dance with a rich musical heritage. The Edinburgh Tango Society promotes tango events in Edinburgh and surrounding cities, and organises workshops, practices and dances. Anyone can take the classes whether they have danced before or not. Tango is a challenging and intensely satisfying dance and music, but most importantly it is a social activity. The ETS is a great place to make friends and become part of the international tango community. For those from elsewhere in Scotland, there are now groups organising regular practices and classes in Glasgow, Aberdeen and the Borders.

We have put together a Charity Tango evening to raise money for the village primary school in Ban Hua Dong, in the Yasothon province of NE Thailand. The school is in a very poor rice-farming area which is experiencing an exodus of its young adults to Bangkok who often leave behind their children with grandparents. The school is struggling to pay for books, sports equipment and needs another teacher.

We are excited to have Mike Quickfall as our DJ for the evening, who is very well regarded prominent DJ in the Edinburgh Tango scene.

There will be some Thai finger food and snacks provided !

We will also have an auction with many exciting items to be bid for!
