Thank you!

As a tango instructor in the San Antonio Community, I have been waiting more than 20 years to fulfill my dream of organizing the San Antonio Tango Festival. This would not have been possible, first of all, without the love and support of my husband Roy Montejano and second, without the dedication and expertise of my professional tango partner Jairelbhi Furlong towards this project.


Organizing events of this magnitude requires the help from not only strong leaders, but from our sponsors, volunteers, and tango community members from far and near that willingly came to our aid. I therefore would like to thank one-and-all from the bottom of my heart for your dedication and support of this First SA Tango Festival. I appreciate all the supportive comments and messages many of you have sent us. You give us the energy and optimism to continue to create events like this one for the enjoyment of all tango dancers for years to come.

Thank you | Gracias,

Angela and Roy

We will see you
September 22 - 24, 2023

The San Antonio Tango Festival was so much fun! Thank you Angela Avila and Jairelbhi George Furlong for inviting me to DJ and for putting together such wonderful event! It was great to reconnect with students and colleagues, some of which I had not seen in over 12 years, as well as to meet new ones! I feel inspired after the classes and the great dances I had. All of that in addition to a gorgeous venue, nice people, and wonderful hosts for Gary and me. I feel happy!

Amazing first festival! The location couldn’t have been better for people out of town. The tango show was outstanding, as was the music selection.  The Mariachis were a great extra. Looking forward to next year festival.
