About

Lake Tahoe Tango Festival

I love Argentine Tango, and I love Tahoe, thus it was really quite natural to put them together. Tango is sensuous, passionate, connected—a kind of poetry in motion. Lake Tahoe is one of the most gorgeous places on Earth—majestic, serene, unhurried, perfect in its rugged improvisation, stunningly beautiful (much like tango).

Tango and Tahoe.  Both are exquisitely beautiful, and both must be experienced to be understood. 

 

Come discover the magical experience that is Tango in Tahoe.

 

The Event

Not Your Ordinary Festival

The Lake Tahoe Tango Festival is a fun and fabulous celebration of tango! Of course it includes dancing tango every night. And, yes, you can take workshops with world-class tango professionals. And, yes, the hotel rooms are lovely (and very inexpensive!), the ballrooms and dance venues are fantastic, and it is quite close to the Lake (some rooms even have views of the lake).

This will be our third year hosting the Lake Tahoe Tango Festival!  Every year it grows ... and we already (as of 11/5/19) have sign-ups from across the United States and even from Canada! 

Come join us for workshops, socializing, dining, relaxing in the spa or in the pool or hot tub--maybe even a little gambling! And, of course, join us for dancing tango every night!

The Venue

Another Side of Lake Tahoe

There are two sides to Lake Tahoe. The first, of course, is the ruggedly beautiful mountains with granite and pines and a fantastic lake. But there is another side to Lake Tahoe as well ... vibrant with energy and parties, live music and gambling. Welcome to South Lake Tahoe with its casinos and live music. It's a whole different feel to Lake Tahoe. 

This year, join us for four days of milongas -- with live music at every milonga! Plus fantastic tango professionals, excellent DJs, wonderful dance venues, great rooms, in a very economical but also lovely resort!
