Bergen Embrace

Bergen Embrace

74 out of 100 with 12 ratings


Tango Abrazo is thrilled to announce the first Bergen encuentro, inspired by the wonderful Embrace Norway (taking a break in 2017). We are different organisers, but will strive hard to make this an equally pleasant and welcoming event.


Bergen is (in-)famous for its rain, but your chances to see the sun at this time of the year are not too bad. And anyone who says sunshine brings happiness, has never danced in the rain! We advise you to take some extra days to explore Bergen, the fjords or other beautiful nature nearby.

Bergen Embrace will take place in Grand Hotel Terminus’ large wooden floor hall, located in the centre of Bergen. Participants may choose to sleep and eat at the hotel, or in a variety of reasonably priced accomodation and culinary options nearby. Norway has reputation for being expensive, but if you stay away from cigarettes, fancy cocktails, fast cars and cocaine, you'll be fine.

This is a role- balanced event for close-embrace lovers at high and intermediate+ dance levels, where we follow basic milonguero codes: use mirada/cabaceo, clear the floor and change partner during cortinas. You may sit wherever you like, and smiling is encouraged and assumed to happen frequently, without effort.

The price, NOK 850 (about €95), includes nine milongas; six at the Hotel Grand Terminus plus Thursday's, Monday's and Tuesday's pre- and aftermilongas in Tango Abrazo's Jekteviken 5. Adding up to 44 hours of dancing (but you might want to take some breaks).

We aim for a maximum of 150 dancers for the Friday-Sunday main event. To assure role balance, we encourage registration in pairs, which will also greatly increase your chances of getting on board. There will also be a single registration option, and we will match leaders and followers as far as we can. Dual role dancers are warmly welcome. The registration will not be based on first come first served, but on dance experience and geographical diversity.

We advise you not to purchase tickets and accomodation before your registration has been accepted.
