Hola! This website was created to celebrate the San Francisco Tango community, share it with the world and to support everyone that is involved.
My name is Maika and I moved to San Francisco in 2008 having spent most of my life in Hawaii. (yes, I learned Tango in Hawaii). Having always loved dancing, it took me awhile to really fall in love with Tango. I had been dancing Ballroom and Salsa since the early 1990′s. For awhile I danced Salsa on a semi-professional level, teaching and performing with a Hawaii based salsa group, Aloha Rumberos. Tango came and went from my life for over eight years until it finally had me in its clutches after my first trip to Buenos Aires in 2007. The passion of Tango enticed me to leave my tropical paradise, and move to the exciting, romantic, often-cold and very fun city of San Francisco. This city had a reputation for a great Tango community, plus all the best tango teacher from Buenos Aires pass though. Upon moving to San Francisco, I made a point to visit every milonga possible and take as many classes as I could afford. I am so glad that I did. Tango in San Francisco has given me many wonderful tandas, amazing Tango friends and even love.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful Tango city as much as I do.
