There are a variety of activities to be held in this event. Those activities are a series of mutually supporting struts and enrich the technical knowledge (theoretical and practical), and the philosophy of tango Dance. The whole activities will enrich the participants to understand tango in depth. Our activities comprise tango classes, workshops with the teachers, milonga, spiritual activities (yoga, meditation), and sight seeing. However, there are some worth places to visit recommended by our team.

 

WORKSHOPS WITH THE TEACHERS

In some workshops, the Maestros will provide a general study of the Tango. The lessons are divided into several stages, i.e. beginner, intermediate, advance and master, also in some categories such as Tango Pista and Stage (choreography) Tango. Everything is laid out in clear syllabuses.

 

TANGO CLASSES / PRIVATE LESSONS

In order for all the knowledge gained from the workshops to be firmly absorbed in the minds of the participants, the lessons in the workshops are followed by some Tango Classes. The Private Lessons provide more practical guidelines as to how to dance Tango in a better way. Here the participants will receive many important lessons from well-experienced maestros who will expose the secrets of Tango.

Every Milonga with their own unique themes are Warming up Milonga, Welcoming Milonga, Traditional Milonga, Gala Milonga, Championship Milonga, and Farewell Milonga.
