Description

If you have ever attended a tango festival, you know the answer. We attend festivals because we must.  We must feel the passion that only a gathering of people joined for one reason—TANGO—creates. We attend because every video we watch on YouTube, every milonga performance we see inspires in us the same desire—to study with masters, to move as they do, effortlessly, as if skating on the dance floors so many nights we call home.

The ASTF is your festival, whether you are a tango beginner who wants to learn fundamentals with master teachers, a seasoned tanguero who croons to vintage Gardel recordings, or the improvisational tanguera who wonders how she can neotango to Stars of the Lid (they’re from Austin, too). Each class session has an all-level, intermediate, and advanced section. Regardless of your level, you’ll find a class taught by each of the instructors with your tango needs and experience in mind. In fact, our topics are so enticing that you’ll find your biggest dilemma is choosing which class to attend. Don’t worry though: you can attend as many or as few events as you desire.

If you are from out of town, you will appreciate the warm abrazo of the Austin community, known for its welcoming nature. Be forewarned, though. Our embrace is so enveloping that many attendees find themselves returning year after year.

Registration is OPEN! The Early Bird Prices are ON! In addition, if you are a Full Time Student with valid ID, you are granted 30% Off on each of the classes and milongas you take! And groups of 5 from out of town get 10% Off! Not bad at all! So, get your friends on board!
