KATS is a not-for-profit organization that promotes Argentine tango in Knoxville, TN.

We have a weekly practica, a weekly practilonga and a monthly milonga along with workshops by regional and international teachers several times a year. We can also point you toward regular group lessons in Knoxville, workshops across the region, and the the entire wonderful world of Argentine tango.

So what are you waiting for?  Come dance with us!   There are no excuses.

  • Don't know how to dance? We have teachers, knowledgeable members and regular practice sessions.
  • Don't have a partner to bring? Then come dance with us!
  • Not an athlete? Tango is for everyone, from experienced dancer to (former) couch potato.
  • Not the right age? There is no wrong age for tango.
