Who's Who at the UK Tango Festival 2015

The UK Tango Festival is all about getting together and celebrating the art and culture of Argentine Tango with all our friends, guests and fellow tangueros. The Championships is a fun addition to the festival where everyone is welcome to sign up to compete, focus on their personal development in preparation for the big event and showcase their dance for the judges critical eye.

 

In no particular order, here are the ‘movers and shakers’ at the festival this year:
