 2. There is now a newly-created Tango calendar for everything happening in Cape Town:
 The idea is that it's a non-partisan source that offers a comprehensive and easy overview - all classes and events, updated frequently, as accurately as possible.
 There also a page with contact details for all the local organisers and teachers, links to their sites, and a google map with all the Tango locations pinned, to help the local community and visitors. 
Argentine tango is danced in other cities throughout South Africa.
Details are published in the Tangojoburg website.
