The International Club of Argentine Tango of South Florida, started out as an idea of a group of tango lovers. This idea became a reality thanks to the support and collaboration of this group of dreamers of diverse nacionalities, who then formed the Board of Directors.
C.I.T.A. was always meant to be a non for profit organization to promote professional artists living in U.S.A, from Argentina and other countries as well as helping and contributing to others in need.

The Club opened its doors in Sunrise, in a small ballroom north of Fort Lauderdale in April 1997. At the beginning very few people attended our Sunday gatherings (mostly Board members) but the Club began to grow very rapidly and in a few months we had to relocate to a bigger place.
On August 31,1997 the International Club of Argentine Tango inaugurated its new location at the Hallandale Cultural Center where we experienced a joyful atmosphere full of contagious energy. About 250 people attended the event with live music performed by a group of tango musicians directed by Miguel Arrabal (renowned bandoneonist residing in U.S.A for many years).

It was a real gala where the connoisseurs of good tango enjoyed great moments and showed off their dancing abilities to the rhythm of 2 by 4. That night , the Board of Directors announced that the Club would donate part of the funds collected to different charities.
It has been 15 years since then and our records shows that we have donated over $ 45,000.00 and we expect to increase this amount in the future.

Week by week more people join us in our popular and fun filled Sundays Milonga in the ballroom of the Italian American Club in Hollywood .We invite everyone that would like to learn this sensual dance, to attend the classes given by our distinguished Argentine teachers.
