* Riga Tango Fiesta will take place at the very centre of Riga, in 5 minutes from the Old city, bus station and train station. Our milongas and lessons will be in a hall with changing rooms, showers and possibility to live just around the corner (both in cheap, but new hostel and not expensive hotels). It means, as soon as you get to Riga from the airport, you don’t need to care about transport anymore . There will be a special tango-café on milongas, so you will not be exhausted and will have an opportunity to have that very tanda!
*Organizer of the festival is one of the biggest Argentinian tango-schools in Baltic – HiTango (www.hitango.lv)
and in the May,4 it celebrates its 10th anniversary
Riga as your tango trip destination:
Tango has happily been alive in Riga for more than 15 years; however, the last 5 years can be considered the most significant in forming today's Latvian tango society. Here you can meet dancers from the most diverse tango streams – from ultra conservative to fusion, peacefully getting along on one dance floor and respecting each other’s space.
In Riga in the city center milonga takes place practically every day, twice on Fridays and on Saturdays.
