Welcome to the 5th HELSINKI MILONGA WEEKEND!

What happens after the splendour of Northern autumn colours has faded? Goodbye red-and-gold foliage, goodbye daylight...
Welcome November, the ugliest month of the year!
We're not afraid of you, not anymore, because we have the perfect antidote: the Helsinki Milonga Weekend!
As the autumn turns into winter, 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!

Schedule:

Torstai / Thursday
Warm-up Milonga 20:00-01:00
20.00 - 01.00 DJ 1

Perjantai / Friday
