Our Mission

Friends of Argentine Tango believe that Tango and other Latin dances provide a link between mind, body and spirit. Our goal is to bring the joys and benefits of these dances across New York City. FoAT's programs encourage movement, connection, self-expression, body awareness, and inclusion.

Our Story

Friends of Argentine Tango was created in 2013 to promote and bring the positive benefits of dancing Tango and other Latin Social Dances to people who might otherwise never try it.  We are introducing dancing to seniors, children, people coping with chronic conditions ( Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s) and disabilities.  We believe that our programs and performances promote inclusion and diversity, teaches social etiquette a creative outlet for the disenfranchised, physical and emotional therapy, and an opportunity to experience a sense of community.
