  • warm hugs and sweet memories in family atmosphere

Maracuentro is Marathon with some Encuentro rules.

The idea underlying this event is quite simple: to create a friendly environment among people coming from all over the world who share the same philosophy of Tango dancing:

  • being open to new and unknown dancers
  • invitation by mirada and cabeceo
  • establishing eye contact with the leader in the proximity before entering the ronda
  • dancing in the ronda
  • dancing carefully in the space respecting other couples
  • few and cautious Boleos and/or Ganchos


                Maracuentro - with Love!
