in Hungary


Augustus 2013

The first tango tribe was a great succes. We created together both an relaxed and creative week. Yoga, silent walks, workshops on photography, painting, Lindy hop, acro yoga and much more. And ofcourse dancing under the stars.
So we will do it again next year. Probably the first full week in August. So make your plans on time, because we will limit the group to about 40 dancers plus children.
Come and enjoy our tango+ week on our paradise countryside land with open air dance floor. Bring your guitar or other instrument and take your children with you!

The idea is simple: bring your tent/camper or rent a room/bungalow in the village. We plan the week day by day, with the contribution of all of us. So anybody can offer a workshop/session in his/her field to inspire others. We all together decide if there is interest and if yes, we just do it. So we'd like to inspire each other with not purely tango, but with tango-life enriching experiences. And we definitely will dance tango a lot!
Relax if you like or discover the surrounding hills, vineyards, lake, hills and tiny villages. At night we dance under the stars and chill out at the fireplace.
