The San Antonio Tango Festival (SATF) offers a cultural, fun, friendly, high-quality opportunity to learn and practice your skills -- and to get acquainted with a generous local community of Tangueros and Tangueras who share the love of the dance. Students of all ages, performance levels and cultural backgrounds are welcome.

Guest instructors who who are well known performers and teachers in the U.S. and abroad will teach individual and group classes. Dancers will learn not only new step sequences to try out on the floor, but also foundational technique – the key to perfecting this intricate dance both as a leader or a follower. 

And of course, there will be Milongas... so bring your dancing shoes and prepare to meet new friends who share your passion for the world’s most passionate dance.

Role Balance

The organizers of SATF understands how frustrating it is to attend a festival where there is not an equal number of leaders and followers.  Although you DO NOT need a partner to attend the festival, we would appreciate your cooperation in registering with a partner or register early enough as an individual (No later than SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2022) so that we can better achieve role balance for the classes.

 

Although we will do our best to role balance the classes, we cannot guarantee a partner per dancer, nor can we be responsible for your partner’s experience level in the class. Therefore, to maximize your class time, it is always best to bring your own partner.

 

Please note that once online registration is closed, you will only be able to sign up for classes a la cart or at the door.  We will welcome you but we cannot guarantee you a partner.

Dear Dancers

For us to keep things organized and gender balanced (as much as possible) for the workshops please let us know the classes you will be attending. 

 

You are allowed to change your mind on the workshops you would like to take, just make sure to let us know. Be aware that making changes on the classes at the last minute (the same day of the festival) may cause imbalance in the classes.

 

If you are with a partner making changes will not cause any imbalance.
