Queer Tango PRIDE Pre-Game at XX+ Crostino


On Saturday, June 1, we’ll be offering a Queer Tango Taster + práctica at XX+ Crostino Lounge. The Taster class (6-7pm, $10) will introduce tango basics from both sides of the embrace. The práctica (7-9pm) is free and open to anyone who wants to dance or just hang out and see what this Argentine dance of connection is all about. Come for a drink or a snack - solo or with a partner - in comfy clothes and shoes (or socks) that let you pivot on the floor, and join us to kick off PRIDE 2019 with hugs and laughter!

Venue: XX+ Crostino Lounge, 1926 9th St NW, Washington, DC 20001 (3 blocks from U St Metro, upstairs from Al Crostino).

IMPORTANT NOTE: This venue is 21+ so please bring your ID! You will not be able to get in without one.

Roxana Suarez and Sebastian Achaval in DC

Roxana Suarez and Sebastian Achaval in DC


This fabulous tango couple is back in DC! Do not miss their world-famous workshops and performance this June.

Roxana had already listened to Tango music in her mother’s womb. As a young child, she used to go with her to the milonga her grand mother Martita organised in the Congresso district in Buenos Aires. She grew up immersed in Tango, watching the best dancers of the time and learning from famous maestros.

Sebastian discovered Tango when he was 15, after a friend made him join a Tango club. At that moment, without even realising it, he was at a turning point in his life. In 2005, he decided to take part in the Tango World Championship with Ximena Gallichio and they became World Champions.

Sebastian and Roxana united their careers in February 2007. Since then they have taught together and have danced in the most famous milongas porteñas and have taken part in Tango festivals worldwide (Americas, Europe and Oceania).
