In 2012, Laura Camacho founded the Athens Tango Project. This group performs tango music all around the South while accompanying tango dancers. Their more notable performances in Athens include the Morton Theater, Cine, the Georgia Theater, Tate Theater and their favorite, Hendershots. They coach and teach tango music, its history and the culture behind it to college students and elementary students. Sometimes they collaborate with rock musicians and play covers of their songs. Whether you’re a UGA student or not, the Athens Tango Project welcomes anybody who wants to play tango music with them.
