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 achieve this goal, the club hosts milongas and practicas, arranges classes and visiting instructors, offers tango travel adventures, and otherwise promotes Argentine tango as a fun and healthy lifestyle.
