World Tango Society
World Tango Society was founded in 2016. We are a Dutch-based charity and we profile ourselves as an ambitious and open network with respect for the roots, the origin, the different developments and further evolution of the Argentine Tango dance.
The tango interest is growing like never before, creating opportunities for thousands of people. This requires a structure, an overview of which inclinations/trends are brooding, what is broiling among local tango communities, what are the points of interest of the mainstream tango, how is tango evolving, are there new sub-categories to be added or clarified, how at the same time encourage/preserve the “original” tango and open up to new ideas, new orientations.
We want to serve as a global forum, we focus on all levels, all regions, all tendencies, all connections, all ages, all genders.To develop friendly relations among the worldwide different tango communities we gather together with the Ambassadors of Argentine tango from around the globe.
We stage an annual Meeting where the most valuable national and international Tango related people [maestros, teachers, DJs, organizers, …] and other forward-thinking organisations are joined by the Ambassadors and acting as World Tango Society. It provides a forum where all can express their views. At the Meeting, delegates debate, formulate and share innovative solutions for the issues Argentine Tango faces. Sharing experience and exchanging knowledge to implement worldwide. The source for new visions, i.e. organising Tango Championships, a quality label for dance schools, how to encourage young people into tango as they play a crucial role in the future of its shape, …
Afterwards, the World Tango Society Ambassadors, take the inspiration they gained from the Meeting and turn it into a meaningful impact. They work on their own initiatives or lend the power of the worldwide tango community to those initiatives already in existence. They return to their dance community, tango company, and set about creating modifications, regenerations, novelties from within, energising their dance environment.
In our worldwide mission we initiate local events for each community. We recently celebrated kick off Tango Community BeNeLux events with Super Sundayz Antwerp, Tango Beach Festival The Hague and World Tango Congress Netherlands. All of these events will be connected to each other, support each other, lift up one another. Next in preperation: Germany!

Tango as intangible Heritage
Argentine Tango is a legacy from the past, what we live today and pass on to the future generations. What is most important is the knowledge and skills that we transmit from one generation to the next. With respect and in accordance with the ideas and thinking of Unesco – that recognized Argentine Tango in 2009 as a intangible cultural heritage – we want to contribute to this appreciation and safe-guarding its recognition.
Cinema – Community Movie Night
Tijdens deze filmavonden maak je kennis met Argentijnse tangofilms. Deze films zie je doorgaans niet in de grote Nederlandse en Belgische bioscopen. Heel begrijpelijk, omdat we hier spreken van niche films. Wij steken er dan ook veel effort in om deze films wel te vertonen.
Concert – Community live!
Tango is so much more when a live orchestra plays for you. That special attraction, we bring to you. Regularly we organise tango concerts and afterwards you are able to put on your dancing shoes. An event that sparkles more than the regular concert or milonga.
