Getting Started with Missoula Tango


Tango is a dance you can start quickly and easily. It all starts with walking and connecting with your partner and the music.
From there, if you get "hooked" you can enjoy a long time of learning intricacies and enjoying your dance more and more. 

Here's some thoughts for followers on Getting Tango Shoes.

If you want to get started, try one of these regular events:

Tango Connections Classes with Lori & Patrick

Downtown Dance Collective
121 W. Main

These classes usually run in a six week series.
It's best to start at the beginning of a series if you can.
Registration and information here

Beginning classes on Wednesdays 6:30 pm
Continuing classes on Wednesdays 7:50 pm
Advanced classes on Tuesdays at 7:30 pm



This is a weekly event. You're welcome to come with no previous experience.
Experienced dancers are very helpful and will gladly show you the basics to get you started. 
6:00 to 7:30 pm  •  $5  •  Venue changes, check out the Homepage for details.
All levels Welcome. Come and dance with us.


Also, each of our monthly dances offers a beginner introductory lesson.
These events are a great opportunity to try out tango, and then stay on and dance at the milonga, which is the tango social dance.
You can also watch other experienced dancers and get a sense of the vibrant tango community we have in Missoula.
