Hot weekend with Ricky & Laura in Latvia 1-3 April 2011!

01 – 03 April 2011

Dear Tangueros,

Beginning of April is definitely not the most beautiful season of the year in Latvia for outdoor activities – still snow, not yet spring, wet, cold… what to do? Take time for tango!

Laura und Ricky

Ricardo Barrios and Laura Melo have agreed to come and give another example of their high art of tango, which we all liked so much during “TangoSunFestival” 2010. We are sure that Ricky’s never ending energy and charisma will get you warm and Laura’s incredibly quick moving legs will make you sweating! Eight workshops and a show with Laura & Ricardo, Heidrun’s special partner search facilitation (☺), support finding accommodation and each evening a Milonga in cooperation with the local Tango schools are awaiting you and we hope to see you at our event.

Argentinean Tango in Finland!

24 – 27 February 2011

Dear friends of the Baltic Sea tango community,

Finland is famous for its passion about Finnish tango – however, also Argentinean Tango has an enthusiastic community who is organizing a festival in the mid-winter 2011: 24 – 27 February. Helsinki in winter – why not taking a frostbite of tango?

Travel recommendation for Latvian and Lithuanian dancers: Its not so far from Baltic States – a car full of five dancers on the Estonian ferry and you are mobile also in Helsinki. Look for car package at!

We are glad to be partners to the Finnish organizing team and offer for people from Baltic States coordination of accommodation search at private homes – if you wish to go to Finland and stay at local dancers, please contact latest by 31 January 2011. If you prefer a hotel or hostel, please look at the festival web site.
