Dance takes us to Helsinki this weekend. We are happy to be part of a new festival Tanssi Vieköön! More than 60 different dance styles  and thousands of dancers and dance enthusiasts meet under one roof at Messukeskus. And of course there will be Argentine tango! We are giving a Master Class, a 3hour workshop of advanced level. The workshop is already fully booked, but you can come to watch the classes in a real master class way! The classes are Friday 19h-20h30 and Saturday 16h-17h30. Welcome!

And we also have the pleasure to give a little performance on Saturday at 23h.

Summer is here!!!

It looks like the Summer is finally here!!! We had a lovely Spring season in Tampere with Tango aMoroso, dancing Argentine tango and Argentine folklore! We had the pleasure to visit other cities and countries as well, meeting old and new friends.

Now is the time to enjoy the Summer activities! We will be teaching in several festivals, where you can learn Argentine tango with us, AND also take classes in Finnish social dancing, “lavatanssi”. This year we also have the honor to teach at the Summer Camp of Amigos del Tango the 10th time! So check the events of The Tour 2017 and join the fun! Registration is open for most of the events. Please ask for more info via e-mail! Hope to see you soon!

Kesäaikataulu on julkaistu, liity seuraan! Kysyttävää? Annamme mielellämme lisätietoja myös tapahtumista ulkomailla. Ota yhteyttä sähköpostitse tai puhelimitse! Nähdään tapahtumissa ja milongoissa!

Argentine folk dance fever

We are in love with Argentine folk dances! I have seen chacarera and zamba first time already 15 years ago, and immediately fell in love with these fun and romantic dances. Chacarera is often danced in milongas in Buenos Aires and Europe, and it creates a lovely happy energy in a tango evening. It has been my dream to learn zamba, and finally three years ago my dream came true. Now we are very happy to welcome the best  Argentine teachers to Tampere! The Tampere Folklore Weekend will take place 18.-21.5.. Ramon Salina and Julieta Brenna will teach chacarera, gato, escondido, firmeza and zamba, and they will perform to us on Saturday 20th in the Milonga Telakka. Check the program and register to the classes!

And don’t forget the weekend before: the legendary Omar Ocampo will teach folk dances with Monica Romero in Helsinki 12.-14.5.2017! More info here!

Sea, tango and sun!!!!!

Our next destination is a classic – the beautiful city of Las Palmas on Gran Canaria!!! Since the 1970s Finnish people have been going there to enjoy the sea and the sun. We keep up the tradition with our tango students! We are looking forward to the yearly tango seminar with a small group of experienced students, and the warm and friendly atmosphere of the tango dancers in Las Palmas! We are also joining again the beautiful Canary Islands Tango Festival 6.-12.3.2017! There are milongas from Monday to Sunday, excursions of the island, and of course amazing teachers, dancers, performances and workshops!!!! The Wednesday milonga is traditionally a masquerade, with a Finnish touch… Our own TDJ Jaana Hänninen will play music on Wednesday, and Pasi y Maria have the pleasure to perform. In our performance we will combine some Finnish tango with the Argentine, as always! Looking forward to see dancers from all over the world!!!

Hello friends in Finland and all over the world!!! We had the pleasure to dance on our national television this weekend, and you can watch the program all over the world!!! The program is the semifinals of the famous tango singing competition of Seinäjoen Tangomarkkinat, the biggest tango festival in Finland! Our dance is right at the beginning of the program, we dance to the song of the Tango King and the Tango Queen of 2015! The new competitors present a good selection of traditional and modern Finnish tangos. Take a peak into the Finnish tango world!!! The program will be available on the website during one month:  Yle Areena

40 sekuntia… 30 sekuntia… 10 sekuntia… Oli jännittävää odottaa livelähetyksen alkua – seisoimme Ylen studion kiiltävällä lattialla, yleisön joukosta ystävät alkoivat vilkuttaa, muistin kaikki ystävät ja perheenjäsenet jotka sillä hetkellä odottivat television ääressä ohjelman alkua – oli suuri ilo saada olla juuri sillä hetkellä juuri siinä!!!

TANGOMARKKINOILLA NÄHDÄÄN!!!

The Spring season in Tampere has been beautiful! Tango aMoroso has kept us busy: the classes have been running smoothly, TamPerla Festival in February was amazing, and the Spring season ended in the lovely HelaTango Festival. This weekend we had the pleasure to welcome the great maestros Carlos Perez and Rosa Forte as guests of Tango aMoroso, and once again we had a great time with workshops, friends and asado!

Now we are looking forward to the Summer season! Check out our schedule, and join us at festivals and dance camps! We will be performing at the big tango festival Tangomarkkinat in Seinäjoki! And we will be traveling to a couple of tango marathons, just for the pleasure of social dancing! And we will fit in some lavatanssi evenings, too… Have a great summer, and see you on the dance floor!
