City College of SF (CCSF) Classes with Chelsea Eng = ON PAUSE


CCSF has in recent terms cut classes weeks PRIOR TO THE START of each semester IF the class roster holds fewer than approximately 10 credit-registered students. In the interest of preserving CCSF classes and programs (which equates to accessibility of education for students) - please register early, then enroll in courses well BEFORE the '2 weeks prior to the start' mark. and

1) STEP ONE: New to CCSF?

You must first apply to the college so you are registered 'in the computer system'. There is a 1-2 day turnaround for registration, so act now! (This is true even if you already have a college degree and 'don't care' about taking a course for a grade.)

2) STEP TWO: ENROLL in specific courses as soon as enrollment opens online for the new semester.

Spring Semester - begins mid-January

runs (for tango) through late May

Chelsea will teach via CCSF Remote Instruction (online) in Canvas

On Teaching Tango at CCSF

Chelsea Eng founded/created the CCSF Argentine Tango Program in 2000. For the past 20+ years she has loved teaching Argentine Tango in the Dance Department to thousands of CCSF students. “Diversity, equity and inclusion” have, from the outset, been integral to her pedagogical approach to sharing the art and culture of this wondrous partner dance. Her annual group choreographic work for the CCSF Dance Concert features gender-neutral partnering (anyone of any gender may lead anyone of any gender), as well as costuming and themes that buck heteronormative constraints and tango cliches. 

Mission Statement

Founded/created (in 2000) & headed by Chelsea Eng,

The Argentine Tango Program at City College of San Francisco

invites students to experience the joy and depth of Argentine Tango as a living art form. To that end, the Program offers progressive course levels, prácticas, milongas and performance opportunities. It aims to deliver high quality instruction in a safe, supportive environment.

In 2007 the Dance Department at City College of San Francisco was awarded the prestigious Isadora Duncan (Izzy) Award for Sustained Achievement in recognition of its strong contribution to Dance in the Bay Area for 70 years.
