Maracuentro - with Love!                   

Last Summer at Maracuentro we were participants from 34 countries, here are some memories :)

We will organize this Basel edition in a new venue - with a perfect wood floor and great acoustic, surrounded by beautiful Swiss green nature. Very close to public transports, to reach city center in 15 minutes. A hotel in walking distance and many other Hotels easy to reach with public transports. We are planing again

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
