About the Club

The Amherst College Argentine Tango Club was envisioned in the 2007-2008 school year by a couple of individuals who saw a need for an extracurricular tango organization at Amherst College and the 5-Colleges. The roots of the club date even longer, when during one Interterm session, Amherst College hosted a course in Argentine Tango. This is how the collegiate world of Argentine Tango was introduced in the Pioneer Valley.

Since its inception the club has been supported by 5-College Tango professor and Argentine Tango instructor Daniel Trenner, whose great expertise in the world of tango has deeply benefited the club.
