Welcome to the website of the 7th Philadelphia International Tango Festival, which will take place from June 1-4, 2017. We really hope that you'll consider joining us for an amazing four days & nights of tango!
This year's festival will take place at a new and very exciting location: The Germany Society (611 Spring Garden Street, Philadelphia, PA 19123).
The teaching line-up for this festival is all-Argentine and top-notch:
** Nito Garcia & Elba Sottile,
** Adrian Veredice & Alejandra Hobert,
** Octavio Fernandez & Carla Marano, and
** Marcelo Gutierrez.
And the DJs are equally amazing:
** Ramu Pyreddy
** Marc Hussner
** Adam Hoopengardner
** Marcelo Gutierrez, and
** Manuk Colakyan.
Our gorgeous and multi-faceted venue will allow us to incorporate many new activities into the festival schedule, including:
** Outdoor dancing in the evenings in a beautiful courtyard, on a professional-grade dance floor.
** Extended milongas (until 3 and 4 am, respectively) on Friday & Saturday nights, in an exquisite, 19th century ballroom.
** A catered dinner in an underground beer hall, modeled on those that are commonly found in municipal buildings in Germany, and
** A late-night alternative milonga in a historic & beautiful library.
And the festival will of course include all of the elements that have always distinguished our event:
** Superb instruction in Argentine Tango for every level from absolute beginner to very advanced, through a total of 28 workshops;
** 26 hours of social dancing to music curated by some of the most respected tango DJs;
** Astounding & inspiring nightly performances;
** Fantastic tango shoes & clothing vendors;
** A welcoming atmosphere where it's easy to meet new people; and
** A historic and beautiful city to explore with an affordable and award-winning restaurant scene.
Please peruse the website at your leisure, and let us know if you need any help planning your participation in our festival (travel planning, partner-finding, etc.).
Very much hope to see you in Philly from June 1 to 4, 2017!
