Getting Started


People dancing at a Milonga at the DDC Missoula MT

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


Tango Connections CLASSES with Patrick & Lori


These classes usually run in a six-eight week series. It's best to start at the beginning of a series if you can.


Live Music by Alejandro Ziegler Tango Quartet at the DDC Missoula MT



There will be an open practica after the Beginning class. All dancers are welcome! Come and dance with us. Check out Tango Missoula website for practica schedule.




Our Monthly Milonga dances offer 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. Check out the Tango Missoula website for schedule.
