We are launching the first Hudson Valley Tango Festival May 26-28 in Kingston. Our amazing Argentinean instructors Maia and David from Dojo Dance Company are bringing to our community a three-day weekend, full of workshops lead by six of the most wonderful and skilled tango maestros and performers, live music and authentic milongas, see below. See website for full schedule. Early bird discounts end March 12.
There will be a diversity of tangueros and tangueras from all around, from the Tri-State area and beyond, dancing together and enjoying one of the most beautiful places at the planet, the Hudson Valley. Picturesquely located in Kingston, the gateway to the Catskills mountains and the first capital of New York State welcomes you with local restaurants and wineries, multiple waterfront restaurants, historic hiking and SPA centers.
This festival will include all the Hudson Valley dance schools and local teachers and bring interest to the citizens of the hosting city and Hudson Valley as well as spread our tango universe. It is all about us tangoing together, celebrating Life, Love and Embracing Culture.
