Siempre means “forever” or “always” in Spanish. For us, the phrase Siempre Tango, “forever tango,” comes down to this:

As long as people seek connection with others, there will always be a place for Argentine Tango in the world. Tango grants us the opportunity to create lasting bonds through intimate embraces and genuine community. This beguiling dance also entices us to keep learning for a lifetime.

Established in 1999, Siempre Tango’s mission is to provide a place to explore this constantly-evolving social dance as a path to wellness, self-confidence, and creative expression. We are also committed to nurturing a vibrant, fun tango community in Ottawa.


In response to the CoVID-19 situation, we are suspending all milongas, prácticas, and group classes until the beginning of April. Our students’ and patrons’ health, safety, and enjoyment are our priority. You can read more about our response here.

Classes

Winter 2020 Session Has Been Suspended.

Due to concerns regarding the spread of CoVID-19 in our local community, we have suspended our current classes until further notice. We will contact our current students in Tango 302+, Tango 102, and Tango 104+ shortly to talk about re-start dates and class credits.

Bruno’s guest session and our new Tango 101 Intensive will begin (hopefully) at the beignning of April 2020.

Thank you for your understanding!

So far in 2020: New Classes, New Milonga, Guest Teachers, and More
