  • excellent and international DJs
  • beautiful venue in a listed building with over 270 qm spaces and wooden floor
  • 100% role balance
  • 2 brunches, 1 light dinner on Friday, 1 dinner on Saturday, 2 midnight soups
  • fresh fruit, snacks and cakes, water, coffee and tea
  • 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:

  • 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
  • being open to new and unknown dancers
