In 1992 Lynn Burmeister introduced tango to Pittsburgh along with a few other dancers from the Coal Country Traditions group. In 2017 we celebrate the 25th anniversary of tango in the 'Burgh.
The Pittsburgh Tangueros dance club was formally organized in 1997 under Coal Country Traditions non-profit umbrella.
In 1994 Michael Wizer attended tango workshops in Manhattan. He began teaching at the Carnegie Museum and at the Wilkins School Community Center, with Linda Jeub as his partner.
The pictures on the left include some of the instructors who have taught classes or workshops for us in recent years.
