    Texas-friendly isn’t just a slogan, and in Austin we’re also tango- and lifestyle- friendly. We seek here to support ourselves and our tango friends and visitors to become our best tango partner for others. We want to be about dancing WITH our partner and WITH the music and WITH each other, regardless of gender identity.

    Flexibility in tango roles makes tango available to more people, and it makes more of tango available to all people who seek to understand both roles.
