Tango Cheltenham was formed in September 2004 by Janet Earl and Adrian Barsby. It started as a series of Tuesday evening classes with about 10 or 15 dancers. We now have a solid core of some 30 dancers at our dance classes and usually have 40 or more in our beginners' classes.
Tango Cheltenham holds weekly Tuesday night classes, but also holds regular milongas here in Cheltenham. Please check our calendar for actual dates. Our regular summer ball is more popular every year. In 2012, we rebranded it as the Cabaret Parisienne Ball. DJ Leroy Tango Cat continues to provide the most excellent music. Over the years, we have had several guest teachers and performers - in 2008 and 2009, David and Kim Benitez; in 2010, Juan Manuel Acosta and Valeria Sol Alvarez; in 2011, David and Kim once more. In 2012, we had Graciela and Osvaldo for the first time.
Tango is a social dance and we have a reputation as a particularly friendly club and would love to welcome you to our classes or one of our milongas. The dancers of Tango Cheltenham often dance at other clubs in the region, as well as those elsewhere in the country and even elsewhere in the world.
Many of our members also dance at Tango Gloucester, our sister club.
