We revolutionaries highly value the local, national and international community of tangueras and tangueros. We are passionate about evolution, cooperation and groovy parties. We believe in the power of experimentation, improvisation and art, all the aspects that we find in the dance and the music of the Argentinian Tango. We worship diversity, freedom and passion, and we consider the embrace of Argentinian Tango as an authentic element to promote social cohesion. To ensure that the embrace feels equally good for both dancers and that the playful interaction enriches, we wish to foster a deeper understanding and study of Tango Argentino.

 

Other principles we stand for are low friction, fun revolution & a bit of glitter.

The top active members can decide in consent also about the statutes of the association. A decision by consent means that no serious and comprehensible argument against the proposal was comunicated by a top active member and everybody gave her or his consent. Before a decision is taken various rounds for information exchange and opinion building are fostered. Such agreements can be realized in monthly or every second month meetings (online or analog) of the top active members or in a informal, written manner initiated by the moderator of the association or a top active member.
