Toinen / The Second Helsinki Milonga Weekend!

Tangon iloa talveen!
Tapahtuman idea: Sarja milongoja, joissa soittavat paikalliset DJ:t. Ennakkoilmoittautumista ei tarvita.

As the darkness turns into winter and almost to spring, and the days lighter, the Finnish tango community invites you to spend a weekend of lovely dancing in hopes of giving you a moment of joy to look forward to. There is no Frostbite Tango Festival in 2016 but the same association that is behind it, is behind HMW!

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

Please do not mark yourself as "Going/Attending" until you are sure you are coming - until that point mark yourself as "Interested". We thank you for your cooperation!

We request all participants to bring something to eat for the evening milonga at a price of around 5-10€. We would love to see local dishes from your country!

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
