Detroit Tango Nuevo was founded by James Valentino, owner of City Style Tango Dance Studio in Troy, Michigan. The team was created as a way to enhance the level of dance in the community and provide performance opportunities for its members. The team performs traditional, nuevo, and alternative styles of Argentine tango.
As of November 2019, we are starting a NEW Detroit Tango Nuevo “B” team! The “B” team will work with the “A” team to continue to enhance the level of dance in the community. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Detroit Tango Nuevo is committed to promoting and raising the level of tango in the Detroit community as well as advocating Detroit as a viable Tango Dance Hub. This is a vision/movement started by James Valentino and coached by the great Claudio y Helena Villagra. We greatly appreciate all of your support and energy!
