Cuatro días de los mejores shows y seminarios

Los maestros

José Fernandez
& Martina Waldman

They have formed part of the best Tango shows and companies in Buenos Aires; "Tango Fire" and "Immortal Tango", among others, and toured all over the world. Not only content with this, they have now started forming and preparing dancers in the social and competition fields.
Currently, they are recognized nationally and internationally as one of the youngest and most complete couples as both performers and teachers.

Dante Culcuy & Veronica Vazquez

Dante Culcuy is the director of the Oxford and Northern England Tango Academy, the biggest tango school in the UK. He has toured all over the world, teaching and performing, first with Miriam Orcutt and now with Veronica Vazquez. We admire them for their clear and organized teaching style, always generous and willing to impart all they know from years of study and experience.

Borja Alcalde
& Christina Gomez

This young, passionate couple are the directors of the Querido Tango dance school, and the Festivalito and Maratoncito international tango events in Bilbao. They have performed several times at milongas and festivals in Europe, including Canary Islands Festival, and placed sixth at the European Championships this year. Their classes focus on building a strong connection and free movement for improvisation.

Chris Benson

Don't miss the chance to learn from this very experienced, beautiful dancer! Chris has lived in Buenos Aires, performed in many festivals, worked as a tango teacher in the UK and abroad for many years and is very knowledgeable for both roles in tango. Currently she teaches regularly at the Leandro Palou Tango Academy in London and she will be teaching and performing with Dante Culcuy for us here. 

 

El concepto

Este festival de tango en Urduliz, cerca de Bilbao, en la región de Vizcaya en España puede que sea pequeña (150 personas), pero tiene un corazón grande!

Esta es nuestra tercera edición y las entradas siempre se han agotado antes del comienzo. Nos conocen sobre todo por nuestras caras felices, la bienvenida cálida, el buen nivel en la pista de madera, excelentes DJs, y buenísimos shows can maestros jóvenes y prometedores que siempre nos proponen clases de muy buena calidad. 

Nuestro objetivo: daros un fin de semana de San Valentín muy especial lleno de abrazos, risas y tango para que vuelvan a casa con los pies agotados pero los corazones llenos. 

No pierdes nuestra Paella casera (pregunta a cualquiera, es deliciosa!) durante la milonga del sábado y también el almuerzo especial el domingo por la tarde en un sidreria típico de la región, todo incluído, para que terminamos satisfechos, un poco ebrios (de alegría, obvio!) y bailando y cantando todos juntos!

The concept

This tango festival in Urduliz, close to Bilbao, in the Vizcaya region in Spain, may be small (150 people), but it has a big heart!

This is our third edition now and we've sold out before event day every time and become known for our friendly faces, warm welcome, good dance level on the wooden floor, great DJs and good shows with young and upcoming maestros who, without fail, have given great quality classes with lots to take back home.

Our aim: give you a special Valentine's weekend full of embracing, laughing, tangoing so you can go home with aching feet and happy hearts.

Don't miss out on our homemade Paella (ask anyone - it's delicious!) during the Saturday afternoon milonga and also the special Sunday lunch at the typical Basque "Sidreria" restaurant next door, all included, so we all end up full, tipsy (with joy, obviously!) and singing and dancing along together.
