Boulder Tango Festival


Although tango is danced in countries the world over, the eighth annual Boulder Tango Festival is straight outta Argentina. From Friday, October 6, to Sunday, October 8, at the Avalon Ballroom, 6185 Arapahoe Avenue in Boulder, will be a riot of sound and movement, with heels clacking and couples moving seamlessly around each other and the dance floor. The festivities kick off at 1 p.m. each day, with classes taught by dancers from around the world. If you don't know your colgada from your soltada but want to learn the basics, check out the free beginner class starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday in advance of that night’s milonga (tango dance party), which will go until the wee hours of the morning. Tickets to individual events range from $5 to $30, while ticket packages run $85 to $330. No partner? No worries. Go to to register for classes and add your name to a list of dancers in need of partners.
