It Takes Two To Teach Tango

Learn moves from the experts and party like an Argentinian dancer

Cape Tango is back with its third edition of the Cape Tango Festival, featuring two world-class coaches and other tango aficionados for six days of exciting milongas, workshops and partying all over the city.

The excitement begins on 4 December, ending on the 9th.


A WORLD-FAMOUS DANCE TEACHER FEATURES
The 4th of December kicks off with registration at Youngblood Africa Art Gallery in Bree Street, followed by two workshops presented by Sidney Grant, a former teacher and a co-artistic director at the American Ballroom Theatre Youth Company. Grant has been featured on TV and often assists in training actors and actresses for ballroom-related scenes. After that, workshops alternate between Grant and another instructor: Mario de Camillis, who's had over 17 years experience in the Argentine Tango industry. Between the two of them, they'll keep your feet moving.


On 6 December there's a cheese-and-wine night at St Martini before the milonga class presented by Grant, with music by DJ Matteo Radaelli. You can participate in any of the workshops over the six-day period, depending on what your ticket allows. Make sure you check out the free milongas (parties) – that’s where you can squeeze more juice out of this event.

MILONGA THE NIGHT AWAY
The first milonga, a party where the Argentine tango is danced, takes place at Youngblood Africa Art Gallery on 5 December. Join DJ Rodney Ehrlich and other tango-ers for an evening hot Latin beats and swaying hips. It's free and anyone can join.


There's another milonga after an optional lunch at Youngblood Gallery on 7 December, running from 3pm to 6pm with DJ Tim Hall. And again on 8 December with DJ Rodney Ehrlich.

On 10 December, there's a milonga to end all milongas: the after-party. Entrance is R50 and come prepared to be seduced by the tempting tunes of DJ Sylvia Westcott.
