About Us

Mission & Goals

Tango Mercurio is an arts education organization presenting Argentine Tango as an agent of community development. Because tango is a community-based art form with a global following, it embraces dancers, musicians, and the public at large. Our mission is to promote cultural understanding and social cohesion through Argentine Tango by providing ongoing public opportunities for dance, music, learning, and community engagement.
