World Tango Congress
Roots, developments and evolution of tango
Three different halls host three distinct categories of tango: traditional, neo and swing. The 40 specialised workshops include technique classes, couples tango, milonga and waltz, as well as yoga. There are even intensive classes with tango world champions. Dancers can also take part in other dance forms, like lindy hop, rock-and-roll, salsa and swing.
World Tango Congress is hosted by World Tango Society, an ambitious and open network that respects the roots, developments and evolution of tango, aiming to make tango more attractive to wider audiences.
Expect specially-themed dance events during the congress! There are several points to note regarding dress code, so here are the details for looking the part: dress up like the flappers of the prohibition (or even a character from The Great Gatsby) for the Roaring 20s Dance, or get into folklore costume for the folklore event.
