Cape Town’s Argentine Tango Marathon

Come dance with us!

Join us for the second annual Cape Town Tango Marathon (CTTM) happening over the weekend of 7-9 December: three days of continuous, summer Tango dancing around one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Our inaugural event in 2017 was a huge success and drew participants from 10 countries – including the U.S.A. and all over Europe – with a cast of local and international DJs, and several live music performances.

Combine a tour of this fascinating place with your love of Tango! Cape Town  has some of the world’s most gorgeous and cinematic natural scenery, and offers rich and diverse cultural experiences catering to everyone’s tastes.

Registration for the second annual Cape Town Tango Marathon is opening on April 23 2018!
