What started as a pilot program in fall 2013 - please see earlier posts - is now a community based program thanks to Ft. Massey's community outreach!
We are looking forward to "old" and new participants joining us on Saturday afternoons, 2 - 3:30 pm, learning the Argentine Tango and connecting not only on the dance floor but over a cup of tea & yummy cookies.
The sessions are free, donations to the program are gratefully accepted. Thank you for your support.
Registration is necessary, no drop-ins. Classes are progressing, please join us no later than April 12th.
Please contact us with questions, we look forward to hearing from you!

We are delighted to announce the introduction of Tea & Tango, a series of new programs exploring the benefits of Argentine tango for seniors and people with health challenges.
Our first program, which we are developing in collaboration with Happily Ever Active and its co-founder, Jesse Robson, is designed for ambulatory people with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke, brain injury, MS and others. It will be offered on Saturdays throughout the fall of 2013 in the Bethune Ballroom of the VG Hospital. Participants may bring a partner, who may be a friend, spouse, relative; or dance with one of the volunteers we are recruiting for this program. Volunteers can be novice or experienced dancers, with or without tango experience.
We are also planning to offer an exploration of Argentine Tango for wheelchair users based on Tango al Reves - shadow position. This program will be informed by the 10 week program in fall and held In January 2014. More information to come later in fall. Please contact us if you are interested in this program.
