Melbourne Social Tango is a community of tango dancers who practice, share ideas and skills, and dance Argentine social tango in welcoming, inclusive settings.

In 2019, the association changed our name from the Melbourne Practica Group to reflect our evolution since inception in 2012. We are building on the strength of past achievements to reconnect and collaborate with tango teachers, event organisers and communities, and generate social tango activities beneficial to our members and the wider tango community.

MST is independent of any tango school, studio, teacher or other organisation.
