The 15th Denver Tango Festival Becomes a Marathon
Labor Day weekend, August 28 - September 1, 2014. We have added more dancing: 41 hours of milongas from Thursday evening through Monday at dawn. Special invited DJs from around the World! Workshops with Brigitta Winkler and Lazzaro Chionna, and body work by Carrie Fields. Changes include an additional Milonga on Sunday afternoon. The Saturday Alternative Milonga (Now "Milonga 50/50") has been lengthened and will offer 50/50 Tango and Alternative music. Guest Instructors from our past festivals have been invited to join us in our 15th Annual Labor Day celebration, with a dedicated private lesson ballroom available every day. Free Childcare will be provided each day in Ballroom 3 - parents come join us!
"By Dancers; For Dancers"
T he Denver Tango Festivals are a special treat for all tango dancers who love the social tango popular in the milongas of Buenos Aires: close, subtle & romantic.
We hire top DJs from around the US, and the dance floors are arranged for social dancing with a quality: suspended dance floor, enough seating for (almost) everyone, and a respect for the line of dance. The DJs utilize tandas and cortinas, and the cabeceo is encouraged.
This is the 14th Denver Tango Festival on Memorial Day weekend. Denver has a friendly, welcoming tango community, and you will see many of your friends from past festivals.
The Denver Tango Festivals attract a high level of dancer. Classes have gender ratios close to 50/50. Most milongas are at the hotel; External milongas include La Glorieta, the fabulous outdoor milonga sponsored by Tango Colorado at the pavilion in Cheesman Park.
