Welcome to Backstreet Tango!


We hope our website will provide you with a general introduction to the wonderful world of Argentine tango, and all the details about our program and studio located in Tacoma, Washington. Seattle and the great Pacific Northwest boast exciting, vibrant Argentine tango communities. Our goal in developing Backstreet Tango is to expand the Seattle area's thriving tango culture even more by providing tangueroes in Tacoma and the South Sound communities a place to call home. We offer enthusiasts who seek a great and traditional Argentine tango venue with a warm, welcoming atmosphere in the South Sound an alternative to those long Seattle drives.

I highly recommend Backstreet Tango because of the excellent and well thought out lesson plans. Leaders learn how to execute each dance pattern so as not to confuse their partners. Luis knows how to professionally teach the dance. There is always a fun group of people at the group lessons.
