Summer tango camp

2.–4.8.2024 Solvalla, Nuuksio

Registration is now open!

🌿 The Summer Tango Camp is aimed for dancers of Argentine tango. There'll be workshops at four levels: beginner, improver, intermediate and advanced and also a group for double role dancers. 🌿 You're not dancing tango yet? No worries! On Saturday and Sunday we offer a full beginners course on Argentine tango with an introduction lesson on how to dance in a milonga – this is a great way to start this wonderful hobby. Welcome to join! The beginners' course is taught by Seita Keloluoto & Ari Sirén. 🌿 The teachers for the improvers, intermediate and advanced classes this year are Jessica Stserbakova & Somer Surgit from Estonia, Marjo Kiukaanniemi & Timo Hakkarainen and Maria & Pasi Lauren. 🌿 The double role group is taken care of by Malin Backström from Sweden (B-level for experienced dancers) and Meeri Friman (basic level A). 🌿 You may register at the camp either with a partner or alone. If you register alone, your spot at the camp will be confirmed if/when a suitable partner pops up among other registered participants. In the double role group no partner is needed. At all classes we recommend to rotate partners but naturally you can also practice with your own partner if you wish so. 🌿 You can join the camp either with a all-inclusive FULL PASS with workshops (1 x 60 min and 4 x 75 min), milongas, sauna sessions, accommodation and meals, or with a CAMP PASS that includes all the same except for accommodation and breakfasts. 🌿 The camp program: www.kesaleiri.tango.fi/en/ohjelma 🌿 There will be four milongas: evening milongas on Friday and Saturday at Solvalla hall and day milongas on Saturday and Sunday at Nature Centre’s Haltia hall. Music will be offered on Friday by DJ Jaana Hänninen, on Saturday by DJ Ville Hiltula (day) & DJ Daniel Valenzuela (evening) and on Sunday by DJ Emma Murros. 🌿 After the classes on Friday and Saturday we enjoy Solvalla’s fine lakeside saunas. Due to the limited size of the saunas they are only available for participants attending the workshops, teachers plus camp volunteers. 🌿 For those living in Finland, participation at the camp requires membership of Amigos del Tango (except for the beginner course and milongas). Participants coming from abroad don't need to be members. You can join the AdT association here (annual fee 25 €): tango.fi/liity 🌿 The camp is produced entirely by volunteers working for free, with the exception of fees for maestros and DJ’s. Join the troops! www.kesaleiri.tango.fi/en/vapaaehtoiset 🌿 The camp venue is Solvalla Sports Institute located next to lake Pitkäjärvi and Nuuksio National Park. Street address is Nuuksiontie 82, 02820 Espoo. The venue is easily accessible both by public transport (direct bus route 245A from Espoo centre train station) and by car, and there is plenty of free parking space available. 🌿 Registration ends on Friday 19.7. The earlier you register, the cheaper it is! 🌿 Milonga passes and single tickets to milongas are sold only at the door, payment by card – no pre-sale. All camp infos and the registration form are found at the website: 👉 www.kesaleiri.tango.fi/en Questions? ➡️ kesaleiri@tango.fi See you in Solvalla in August! (Psst. – if you come from further away, note that there'll be a pre milonga at El Ático in Helsinki on Thursday 1.8.)

Amigos
del
tango

Amigos del Tango is a registered nonprofit association with the aim to uphold and develop the knowledge and practice of Argentine tango in Finland.

El ático

El Atico is the association's own venue and at the same time your own dance studio with good transport connections in Pasila, Helsinki. You can go there for tango lessons, milongas or to practice.

  • How can I get in to El Ático?
    Door opening: on milonga nights, call the number at ground floor door, and the door will be opened for you electronically. Similarly, if you are coming to classes, call from the door. Door cards can be acquired and training time/value loaded into them at weekly milongas. The door card can also be acquired at any separately agreed time. To arrange this, please send an email to: info(at)tango.fi
  • Why should I become a member?
    As a member, you have the opportunity to participate in tango lessons and various events organized by Amigos del Tango. The association mainly offers tango lessons in connection with festivals. The association's annual events are Tango Frostbite and Kesäleiri festivals and Helsinki Milonga Weekend - to participate in all of these you must be a member. As a member of the association, you will receive a membership letter in your email a few times a year. The membership letter contains information about tango events and the activities of the el Ático dance studio. As a member, you get a discounted price to el Atico's weekly milongas. The association's Dance Hall is at your disposal for training around the clock, as long as you have paid the training fee!
  • How much does membership cost and where exactly does the payment go?
    The membership fee is currently 25 euros per calendar year. For example, if you participate in a milonga 9 times during the year, the membership fee has already paid for itself for you (milonga membership price 7 euros/others 10 euros). Membership fees partly cover the basic activities of the association. The membership fees cover, for example, the dance studio space rent and Teosto fees.
  • I want to develop argentine tango in Finland. What can I do?
    To get started, contact active members of the association by saying hello to us at a milonga or by sending an email to the address info(at)tango.fi. Then, at the next autumn member meeting, raise your hand and join the board to develop the association in earnest!
