Dear friends,

Sadly, from 16th March onwards the academy will shut down all activities during the outbreak. We will reopen as soon as the government lets us know it is safe to do so.

  • Tickets for Improvers: If you bought tickets for improvers you will be able to use any tickets in your account marked as cancelled in the future. Once we reopen the academy you will be able to reschedule those tickets.
  • Beginners Course: If you have signed up for a beginners course, don't worry. Once everything comes back to normal you will recover all your 18 lessons from the start.
  • Subscriptions: As you probably already know, I am a full time Tango Teacher/Organiser whose income depends entirely on people enjoying the magic of Tango and the social aspect of our amazing community. The quarantine we are all having to go through is putting a lot of pressure on my finances. Plus St Matthew's Primary School refused to give me back the money I paid for the rent of the hall (I pay every 6 months).

    Several people have expressed the willingness to support me in these difficult times by refusing to cancel their subscription or reducing the amount by adding vacations to it. I have no words to express my immense gratitude to all of you. It makes a huge difference to me and I promise to repay you with lots of hugs, dances, lessons, parties, and more.

    So, if you have a subscription you have three choices:
    • 1. You can cancel your subscription before 1 April so you won't be charged anymore.
    • 2. You can add vacations (as many as you want) to reduce the amount to the charged every first of the month. For example, if you add a vacation from 16-31 March (half of a month) then on the first of april you will pay £65/2=32.5 (or £55/2=27.5 if you are a student).
    • 3. Continue your subscription without vacations. If you do so, I will repay you with 2 private lessons per month once the quarantine is over plus my eternal love and gratitude.

Thanks a lot for your support and remember to wash your hands, stay at home and most of all, KEEP CALM. Looking forward to see you very soon!

Argentine Tango in Cambridge

Argentine Tango is one of the most sensual dances in the world. It allows two people to connect intimately through movement on a dance floor.

At the Cambridge Tango Academy, we want to share our passion for this exquisite dance. Both our community and Tango itself are beginner-friendly, and having two left feet is not an issue: if you can walk, you can Tango.

We won’t be focusing on dance routines, we will teach you to lead, to follow and to move instinctively to the music. It’s up to you and your own creative seed to choose how to dance.

Tango is a partner dance, and social dance that originated in the 1880s along the Río de la Plata, the natural border between Argentina and Uruguay. It was born in the impoverished port areas of these countries, where natives mixed with slave and European immigrant populations. The tango is the result of a combination of the German Waltz, Czech Polka, Polish Mazurka, and Bohemian Schottische with the Spanish-Cuban Habanera, African Candombe, and Argentinian Milonga. The tango was frequently practiced in the brothels and bars of ports, where business owners employed bands to entertain their patrons with music. The tango then spread to the rest of the world. Many variations of this dance currently exist around the world. On August 31, 2009, UNESCO approved a joint proposal by Argentina and Uruguay to include the tango in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists. More info
