We are a small group of dancers who got together way back in 1997 to promote tango in Edinburgh and beyond.

The Edinburgh Tango Society is organised by volunteers on a non-profit basis and is funded by its own activities. Our aim is to provide the space and opportunity for everyone to learn and dance Argentine Tango in Edinburgh and further afield in Scotland.

Join the crew!

We are always looking for enthusiastic tango dancers to contribute to our community, so please get in touch if you’d like to help!


Tango in Edinburgh has a rich and eventful history as one of the longest running tango communities in Europe. Here are some of the highlights over the years:
