 4th edition



The Spring Break Tango Party has been canceled due to COVID19

The next edition will take place on 2021, from 30th of April to 2nd of May 2021.

Our marathon is an optimally sized event:
only 150 participants, role-balanced, friendly atmosphere, perfect dancefloor (floating wooden laminate with 5mm absorbent mat), relaxing social area, lots of windows with sea view to have the full day and night experience.
Participants will be hosted a few meters away from the dancefloor, in the double, triple/quadruple rooms of the Torre Marina Residence. This is not a luxury accommodation, but you will find all you need for spend relaxing time between a tanda and… another one!
The package is straightly ALL INCLUSIVE, so the marathon price includes:


  • 3 days of Tango Party, with afternoon, evening and night milongas from FRIDAY 1 May to Sunday 3 May (the Sunday After marathon included), with snacks and beverage during the event.

  • 2 nights (Friday, Saturday) accommodation in rooms with private bathroom.
