Kolmas/The 3rd Helsinki Milonga Weekend!

As the autumn turns into winter, the days are dark and the most depressing month of the year is about to end, the Finnish tango community invites you to spend a warm weekend of lovely dancing with friends in Helsinki. Who cares what it's like outside? Come and share moments of joy with us - just when we need them the most!

The concept is simple but brilliant:
A series of milongas chained together with local (but still internationally renowned) DJs, no registration required.

Tangon iloa syksyn pimeimpiin iltoihin! Helsingin tangoyhteisö kutsuu kaikki El Aticoon viettämään lämmintä ja kodikasta tanssiviikonloppua säätä uhmaten.
Tapahtuma koostuu sarjasta milongoja, joissa soittavat paikalliset DJ:t. Ennakkoilmoittautumista ei tarvita.

20.00 - ~23.30 Warm-up Milonga del Jueves

Lauantai-ilta / Saturday night: Nyyttikestit / Potluck food!
We request all participants to bring something to eat for the evening milonga at a price of around 5€. We would love to see local dishes from your country! Please prepare the food so that it can be served directly when you arrive; the kitchen in Ático does not have a big selection of kitchen utensils.

Sunnuntai / Sunday
12-14 Brunch
12-17 DJ 7
18-22 Milonga El Huracán DJ 8
Milonga El Huracán will have about 30% alternative music!

The milongas have a price of 8€ for visitors from other countries and members of Amigos del Tango, price for others: 10€. It includes food, coffee and snacks. You are welcome to bring your own bottle of refreshments.

As there is no registration required, we are not making any promises regarding leader/follower balance at the milongas.

Please make sure that you click "Going" here on the event if you are coming - we need to know how much food to prepare!

If you are a group of followers travelling together, we encourage you to use your charm and allure to bring some leaders along with you; everyone will be grateful!

Warm greetings from the DJ team:
Emma Murros, Jaana Hänninen, Jenni Valli, Antti Suniala, Bernt Andreas Drange, Jani Keinänen, Kristian Salikoski
