Tango for everyone. Queer is about how we dance.
Queer Tango is Argentine Tango danced with open roles. The traditional gender-specific roles are rejected: everyone can lead and everyone can follow; anyone can dance with anyone else. Queer tango is for anyone who wants to play with all that tango can offer. Queer Tango is for everyone, including those who identify as LGBTQ. Everyone Welcome: All sexual identities; All genders
Argentine Tango is a social, partner dance which is improvised. It is an interactive conversation between the dancers. While it may look good, it is so compelling because of how it feels. Argentine Tango is very different from the performance-focused Ballroom Tango.
Learn how to dance Queer Tango in an inclusive and friendly environment. Learn how to lead (suggest the movements) and follow (interpret the suggestions). Have fun and make new friends. Come and be part of the beginning of an exciting new Queer Tango community in Edinburgh.
