Third International Tango de Salon Festival in Poland 26-29 September 2013 Dodano dnia 11.09.2013

Passion, adventure, meeting. With friends and strangers at a milonga. To express music and yourself. Joy and freedom, respect for the music, space and other dancers. Alive and real. Just for you and your partner. This is what our tango is.

Let’s meet in Łódź for The Third International Festival of Tango de Salon in Poland.

The idea of the festival was conceived by Jakub Kania, who has been the first tango dancer in Łódź. Together with Małgorzata Chojnacka he founded one of the most rapidly growing centres of tango culture in Poland, TANGOLODZ. He has been studying with the world's greatest dancers and interpreters of tango - among others Javier Rodriguez and Julio Balmaceda, also in Argentina and Uruguay.
