Social Tango - A Short Film

This seven minute video demonstrates quality social tango dancing and provides insights into what social tango involves, why the dancers began dancing tango, and what the dancers like in particular about tango dancing. It can be watched by clicking the image link.

Social Tango

Filmed & Edited by Yelizaveta Nersesova
Sound Design by Lynne Earls

SOTANGO is a collective of dancers and multimedia artists whose mission is to create original content that shows what we love about social tango.

Our aim is to build and strengthen the social tango community around the world. We support its development as a social practice by highlighting the benefits and healing qualities that the dance has to offer to people of all ages and abilities.

We believe that by documenting and sharing the impact of social tango on people’s everyday lives in organic and creative ways, we can support and encourage new and experienced dancers alike in this rich and rewarding journey through movement, music and authentic human connection.
