The UK Argentine Tango Association is the support association for Argentine Tango within the UK. We provide a strong voice for Argentine Tango and support the growth of Argentine Tango as an art form in the UK. Our aims are to provide and share information to members and to help enhance and strengthen the UK Argentine Tango community . The Association represents the interests of Argentine Tango teachers, organisers, DJs, musicians, shoe and clothes shops, and dancers throughout the UK.
Argentine Tango is much more than just a dance. It is an art form that embraces history, culture, poetry, and music. We hope to help more people discover its beauty and richness.

The Association is a first for Argentine Tango and we are proud to have created such a positive initiative that brings our community together to shine a light on Argentine Tango and demonstrate its accessibility to all.
