World Tango Congress Scheveningen

The World Tango Congress 2020 takes place at the Grand Hotel Amrâth Kurhaus in the Scheveningen area of The Hague.

Roots, developments and evolution of tango

Three different halls host three distinct categories of tango: traditional, neo and swing. Special workshops include technique classes, couples tango, milonga and waltz, as well as yoga. There are even intensive classes with Mundial Buenos Aires 2019 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 Venetian carnival gear for the Masquerade Ball.
