Welcome to PennTango!

Since 2009, PennTango has been promoting the enjoyment of Argentine tango at the University of Pennsylvania. Argentine Tango is a highly social dance form, emphasizing connection and improvisation. PennTango's membership consists of a fun group of social dancers interested in improving their tango skills and building a larger community to go out dancing with! We are not a performance group, and do not limit membership or hold auditions. We are open to all Penn students, faculty, staff and alumni!

You can reach us at penntango@gmail.com. You can also also find us on our facebook page!

Our classes are taught by the wonderful Lori Coyle and Howard Schwartz from their studio in Media, PA.
