This Tango USA website is the “parent website” for the tango initiatives of Jim Baker, a Tucson businessman, milonguero, organizer of tango events and provider of tango-related services.
Jim took over the organization of the Tucson Tango Festival in 2015 from its founder Rusty Cline, purchased a real wood portable dance floor and built additional units to create lanes for tango, started a dance floor rental business for festivals of all genres of dancing, and since 2019 has organized the Phoenix Tango Marathon.
Over the years Jim has established extensive connections with tango maestros and musicians, tango DJs, tango teachers, tango festival venue providers, vendors of tango products, and others involved in tango throughout the USA, in Buenos Aires, Argentina and in other places around the world.
The current active “child websites” for scheduled Tango USA events and services are:
