The Tango Adventure

The Tango Adventure Club (Tangóævintýrafélagið in Icelandic) was established in Reykjavík, Iceland, as an association in November, 2006. The purpose of the club is to encourage a diverse dance culture in Iceland. To acheive this goal, the club among other things hosts milongas and practicas, arranges classes and visiting instructors, offers tango travel adventures, promotes the Argentine tango in a smoke and alcohol free environment and otherwise supports a fun and healthy lifestyle.
