Come and join us for the 21st edition of the Portland Tango Festival!
We're excited for a great celebration of Argentine Tango in our wonderful, green city of Portland, Oregon.
The Portland Tango Festival is the longest running US festival dedicated to the authentic social dance and culture of Argentina.
As it is in our tradition, this year we are bringing amazing teachers and performers that will make your participation a great pleasure and an opportunity to deepen your Tango experience.
Our guest teachers this year are:
Ariadna and Fernando are part of the younger generation of Argentinean tango dancers that nowadays are making the trend in tango. Brought up and trained by the previousgeneration of tango intellectuals that dissected the dance and made it so incredibly popular, they are currently making their way in expression, passion and smoothness of the dance.
Yesica and Ariel have been traveling all over the world teaching tango and they recently won the Peleando Variacion contest in Buenos Aires. They are exciting and very elegant dancers.
Kara is also part of the younger generation of tango dancers. Exquisite teacher and dancer, she lived in Buenos Aires for many years where she trained and developed her unique approach to the dance. For this festival she is partnering with our excellent local teacher Dominc Bridge.
The Festival also brings with it:
- World class DJs
- The best venues
- A warm welcome from famously friendly Portlanders
- And most importantly, an authentic Portland experience
You are cordially invited to dance a reckless amount, and learn exciting material from our exceptional teachers. There's an exclusive track for advanced dancers on one end of the spectrum, and on the other we have a cool little program called Bite Size Tango geared for totally new dancers to experience the magic in a tasty little chunk (particularly good for locals, and we offer corporate sponsorship opportunities, contact us for more info.)
We hope that you will join us and experience our favorite tango festival for the first time or the 21st time. We can't wait to see you!
