Where do you start?
Probably one of the best places is Facebook and the page for your part of the world. We have listed some of the Facebook pages below that regularly include posts on what's happening.
Groups and Festivals... how about Dancer Shape - a website that focuses on creating online lessons for professional and aspiring dancers, of all walks and ages. Not just tango - their mission statement reads "By fusing multiple methods and disciplines we bring to you a holistic approach to movement, well-being, and self-expression through dance. This is an English website based in London and the teachers are world class - payment is in Euros.
The Unidos Online Tango Festival ran from 17-30 April, however you can still sign up for Tango Yoga with the fabulous Roxana Suarez (pictured with her partner Sebastian Achaval) - there is bound to be more.
Let's Dance Tango is another site which seems to be based in the UK as prices are in Euros and it is on London time. This site is offering classes with well dancers including Sebastian Jiminez and Joana Gomez, Yanina Valeria Quiñones and Neri Luciano Piliu.
Cosmo Tango's Lola Diaz and Fabian Salas, who are the organisers behind the CITA festival in BA every year have a really busy website.
Here you will find:
- a series of instructional videos (“Learn to Dance Tango with Fabián & Lola”) in 4 different languages,
- Videos of Premios Tango, an award for tango dancers, teachers, DJs and entrepreneurs;
- Videos of the many of today’s tango masters performances

In Brisbane Hugo Fernandez' school Alma de Tango is offering online classes with Zoom on Saturdays. Check out their timetable online. You can do a casual class for $16 - or book a course. There are classes for different levels.
One of the best places to discover what is happening in tango. We recommend that you check out all the pages, not just the ones local to you as some online events do not post to all.
