Studio Tango Montréal & Tango Social Club
Studio Tango Montreal, one of the continent’s most well-respected tango institutions, suddenly found itself in October 2015 with their building sold and obliged to leave it's charming Old Port location. Tango Social Club, known for their hospitality and buena onda, stepped up and generously invited their friends from ''the Studio'' to become their new room mates and share their gorgeous space in the Villeray district ! Et voilà ! Now TSC is home to two sister companies who complement each other very well - proving not only that being roommates is a convenient and practical use of studio space but that the close quarters and shared office space allows for the breeding and brewing of fantastic collaborative projects as well!
Tango Social Club
Establishing in 2011, Tango Social Club has quickly become a Montreal Tango institution. Known for it's relaxed, yet super vibrant atmosphere, it truly is a place where friendships form and everyone feels at home. The team at Tango Social Club is recognised for the quality and attention to detail that they propose with every event they organise, be it their weekly milongas, or any of the many successful special events that they have produced
Studio Tango Montréal
Established in 1997 Studio Tango Montreal is one of the largest Tango Schools in North America offering classes of all levels, 7 days a week all year round.
The Studio's success is due to the passionate commitment of its talented teaching staff.
