These three couples of Argentine maestros will be teaching their dancing art all through the festival. There will be 6 workshops on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and a group class for all participants on the last day, an innovative way to end a festival.

At each milonga a couple of maestros will perform so that the one-night tangueros will have the opportunity to appreciate their talent.

How pleasant and energizing to dance to the music of an orchestra! Musicians observe dancers and dancers follow the music. The ensuing chemistry conveys energy felt by all of us.

This year we will have the pleasure to hear and to dance to these three orchestras, each one having its own personality and bringing a different atmosphere each night.

The combination of two typically Hispanic dances, tango and flamenco, thanks to the chemistry of the artists, will prove that they are not so far apart.

On a unique and minimalist stage, Carlos Saura introduces us, in “Argentina”, to an anthology of Argentine music, songs and dances.
