Description

5 Years ago i received the key of De Danswerkplaats and invited Michelle Marsidi and Joachim Dietiker for a festive opening. After this wonderful event the idea developed to create an evening with hours and hours of dancing, with the best marathons and encuentro's DJ's to give dancers an "at home marathon feeling" for just one night. The idea was good and La Roca is now a renowned milonga.

Don't want to read all details? go straight to the ticketshop here: https://www.ticketkantoor.nl/shop/festivalito (or in English: https://www.ticketkantoor.nl/shop/festivalito/en )and be in time for the early bird all-in package!

To celebrate 5 years La Roca I invited Michelle and Joachim back. They will give workshops and a masterclass seminar (on invitation only) and will perform.

But.... since Solo Tango was such a big hit at my 15-year anniversary festivalito june 2017 i want to make this weekend a real festival weekend and invited them back too. They play saturday AND sunday evening.
Here a little movie of Solo Tango and Michelle and Joachim performing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9sFxFvTHIU

All this will take place in a great, old industrial venue. A large wooden floor, superb sound system and cheap drinks in great atmosphere. Parking is easy, train nearby. Amersfoort is a wonderful medieval city, so take some extra time to visit it.

Milonga's:
Saturday daytime: DJ Toufik Cherifi
Saturday night: first concert live music by Solotango & DJ DavidxTango
Sunday daytime: DJ El Jirafa; Jacob Vosmaer
Sunday night: Performance by Michelle and Joachim, 2nd concert live music by Solo Tango & DJ Stefan Wimmer

Simple and combinations of circular colgadas
Advanced level only.

Saturday Evening workshop: Sequences for Small Space: Secrets and Compact Figures for the Dance Floor. Intermediate and advanced level.
