Tango Festivals & Marathons

May 23, 2021

It is now end of May, 2021 and the world of Tango is slowly coming back to life. Friends in the Unites States are very excited about the return of festivals. I know they are dancing in Miami, Florida. Some dancing in Seattle… and in New York.

Recently, I updated all my favorite festivals which are listed below, and looking forward to traveling and dancing, but as I am living in Buenos Aires. Now, and until the current 2nd wave of infections decreases and more than 10% of the population is vaccinated, there is nothing going on publicly. Am hopeful, the situation will change will occur later in the year. So for, now I will continue dancing privately in my living room. Abrazo grande!

March 2021, as the pandemic still rages across the world, no one is sure about social dancing and dancing in general because of the intimate contact.

Above all as the year continues, tango festivals and marathons are announcing their intentions of either holding their events or cancelling their events. This page is updated with the latest information.

Primarily, What is going on in the world of social dancing? NOTHING now.

Looking forward

However in 2021, perhaps we will return to traveling in the world. We might again be able to dance at Tango festivals and marathons in Italy, Portugal, Argentina and many other locations worldwide. This is something we all want. To get back to dancing tango.

Missing the embrace and the music, missing the lifestyle and we missing our tango friends. Now we must remember now is the time to employ patience.

WE all want to return to dancing Tango. WE all have to use our personal preference for safety, mask or no mask, hand cleaner and the choice of dancing outdoors or indoors.

Moreover, many of us have not danced or embraced in tango for over a year. WE are all aching to embrace, to dance and to live and dance like we used to.

However, WE all want to return to social dancing. Returning to tango maybe not as quickly as we want. Tango will return as well as the social dancing of tango at festivals and marathons.

In conclusion, we just have to be patient. Kindness goes a long way in these times.
