Get involved in workshops, dance parties and a gala dinner

Tango fever is set to take Dubai by storm when an
impressive line-up of international tango dancers hit the dance floor from 23 to
26 May during the fourth Dubai Tango Festival.

The festival will feature a selection of Argentine Tango
workshops and performances, as well as ‘Milongas’ (tango dance parties), and a
lavish gala dinner at The Meydan Hotel on 25 May.

The gala dinner performances and tango workshops will
be conducted by a host of renowned Argentinean Maestros including including
Alejandra Mantinan and Aoniken Quiroga, Sabrina and Ruben Veliz, as well as the
ever-popular Facundo Gil Jauregui.

“The tango festival is a rare opportunity for tango
enthusiasts to be taught by some of the best dancers in the business, whether
you are a beginner or a more advanced dancer. And for those who love watching
tango, but don’t fancy dancing themselves, they can see the experts performing
live at the gala dinner,” said Maya Saliba, organiser of the Dubai Tango
Festival.

“This year our line-up of spectacular Argentinean
Maestros will also be accompanied by professional Tango DJs Luca Lamberti and Lalie
Toutango, who will be adding a new electrifying mix to the event,” added
Saliba.

Beginner, intermediate and advanced workshops will run
for all three days at The Meydan Hotel, with private classes available on
request. The milongas will also be held every evening from 10pm at Meydan, and
all milonga ticket holders will be entitled to a complimentary one-hour Tango
initiation class before each milonga on 23, 24 and 26 May.
