Help grow Tango in Africa
Be part of this journey – Funds needed for our International Tango teachers and Students.

We are hosting our 3rd annual Tango festival in Cape Town (4 - 9 Dec), tango lovers all around the world will be attending this event. Over the last 2 years, our two amazing International tango teachers, Sidney Grant and Mario de Camillis, have paid their own way to Cape Town and helped us grow Tango in South Africa! 

We invite you to be part of this journey with us by making a contribution which will contribute to bring Sidney and Mario to South Africa again, funds will also be used on sponsoring 4 local students to attend tango workshops.

Tango was born from a heady broth of slaves from Africa and different migrants in search of a new life in Buenos Aires and Montevideo. Dance and music break down barriers and bring people together from all walks of life and is what the world needs – Africa is no exception! We seek to remind Africa of this connection by sharing the intricacies and passion of this amazing dance and music with others.

Open your heart and donate to this great cause, and if you know of other individuals who share the same appreciation and can contribute, please forward our campaign to them. Any extra funds will be kept safe to use for next years International teachers and students.                Regards   Cape Tango
