This event will feature social dancing rather than workshops and performances. I will manage the ratio of leaders and followers, and there will be a limit on attendance. All Inclusive Ticket (no drop-ins).

I produced the Denver Tango Festivals for 15 years, Memorial & Labor Day weekends. These were some of the largest tango festivals of the first decade of the 200s. I was happy to take a break for the past 7 years, during which I recovered my passion for teaching and dancing Argentine Tango. In re-inspiring the Denver Tango Festival, I wish to return to the original mission, which was an emphasis on the social dancing and of the milongueros that witnessed in Buenos Aires on my first visits.

Please email me If you wish to receive further information... Actual registration won't open until 2023.
