A special musicality class to all levels is given by German musicians Frank Schulte (piano) and Christian Gerber (bandoneón).

Live music is played during Friday, Saturday and Sunday concert-milongas. The artists include musicians from Estonia (Kirill Ogorodnikov – guitar, Jekaterina Danilova – accordion/bandoneón, Nele Suisalu – vocals), Quinteto Ángel from Germany (with Christian Gerber on bandoneón who played both in Trio and Sexteto Stazo Mayor at Tango Port Tallinn 2011) and duo Aires de Finlandia – Petri Kaivanto (Finland) & Alejandro Polemann (Argentina).

Milongas are DJ-ed by DJ Kaia Hüva, DJ Kaja Keil (both from Estonia), DJ Nemanja Sonero (Serbia).

In their classes they put the focus on a comfortable joyful dance with a delightful contact in the embrace, which gives room to various improvisations, away from the mere memorizing of steps.
