Welcome to the Grand Rapids Tango Community!
We are Tango enthusiasts of all levels. As dancers, musicians, singers, teachers and students, we are dedicated to building and continuing social tango throughout West Michigan. The local community began in 2005 and continues to grow. There are ongoing classes, practicas, and milongas that you can find on the adjacent links.
