Why Queer Tango?
To offer a safe and welcoming space for learning and dancing tango for GLBT-identified indivduals and couples, anyone who enjoys dancing with same-sex partners, people everywhere on the gender spectrum, and everyone who appreciates the opportunity to dance outside narrowly defined traditional gender roles.
We believe that anyone can lead or follow in partner dance and that the most skillful and dedicated dancers inevitably learn both roles. Queer Seattle Tango is proud to offer classes and dance events that are hosted, run, and attended by people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer, and our allies.
What does Queer Seattle Tango do?
We run Open-Role tango classes in Seattle in two series: Tango Foundations (absolute beginners welcome!) and Advanced Tango Structure and Form (for more experienced dancers). We also offer occasional special-topics workshops with world-class visiting instructors, host a monthly tango potluck party, and travel to perform and teach open-role master classes nationally and abroad.

Do I need a partner? You do not need a partner to attend this class. We work collaboratively in this class and rotate partners so everyone gets a chance to meet new people and practice their new moves with friends of different sizes, heights, and styles of moving. The goal is to be able to dance tango with your friends, family, new date, significant other, or anyone you choose!
