This page was published firstly on March 5, 2005. Why did I do it? The root to comprehensive information on San Francisco Tango activities, events, teachers, milongas, dance parties was missed in my opinion. So to be able to find easy what I need I have made this list and shared it with you, so you can use it too. Thank you!

My name is Igor Polk. I dance argentine tango in San Francisco and Bay Area. My favorite style is close embrace or Apilado style of dancing, but I like to dance everything! More and more I feel the love to the ancient, vintage Salon style.
Argentine, Argentin Tango, Argentinian Tango, Tango Argentino, Milonguero style.
