In a few words, Camtango is: fun, sociable, elegant, relaxed, musical, free, comfortable.
Tango is like all human knowledge – the more you learn and know, the more you find out that there is yet to learn and to know.
If you wish you can enjoy tango during the first hour of your contact with it, but it can take you a lifetime to master it. Typically we are finding that people in the Cambridge tango community start to really enjoy dancing tango after having done three tango courses, a bunch of drop-in lessons and danced a few times each week. (See the beginners, improvers, intermediate and advanced pages for more information.) Everyone is different; everyone can dance their own tango.
Camtango is situated right in the heart of Cambridgeshire, East Anglia, England, UK. The nearest airport is London Stansted, which is about 30 minutes away by car. Cambridge train station is about 10 minutes’ walk from our main Tuesday evening venue. London is about 1 hour and 15 minutes’ drive from Cambridge, so people sometimes go there and vice versa.
Camtango is a wonderful thing. People regularly come to dance and learn tango from: Norwich, Market Harborough, Leicester, Diss, Newmarket, Ely, Huntingdon, Peterborough, Bedford, St. Neots, Bury St. Edmunds, Thetford, Ipswich, Bishop’s Stortford, Stansted, Stevenage, Saffron Walden, and the many villages surrounding Cambridge (Histon, Cottenham, Coton, Fulborn, Milton, Oakington, Girton, Grantchester, Impington, Teversham, Waterbeach, Bar Hill, Comberton, Willingham, Bourn, Great Shelford, Babraham, Whittlesford, Bottisham, Swaffham Bulbeck, Swaffham Prior, Balsham, Godmanchester, St Ives, Madingley, Caxton, Etlisley, Great Gransden, Little Gransden, Meldreth, Melbourn, Duxford, Wickham, Thurlow, Teversham, Wilbraham, Landbeach, Hardwick, Caldecote, Barton and Abington).
