Tango Diva


San Francisco, CA

Organizer since:

November 7, 2011


Tell us about your interest in tango.

It informs my writing and life now - I love writing about it as much as teaching it. It's mysterious wonderful dance because of how it connects us to ourselves and to others.

Tell us about your other dance experience - none necessary.

I've always danced - recreationally - til present. Now it seems like what could be more important?

If we add more meetup lessons, which times would you prefer?

I both lead and follow - but love following. Lead and follow are misnomers. There is a "starter" in tango, maybe. But then lead and follow disappear and there is only a dance, an elegant wave of motion. Good leaders will tell you that they are following you.


I'm Camille author of Tango, an Argentine Love Story, memoir of a "woman who loved, lost, got mad, and decided to dance." I quit my day job in 2005 and went to Buenos Aires, where I danced and wrote, lived and loved and became a tango addict.

What Camille is saying about this Meetup Group

The people were all friendly, serious about tango, light-hearted in their approach. I especially enjoyed working with Gurav, Xiayang, Roy, and Erica - come back!
