World Tango Congress is hosted by World Tango Society, connecting aficionados world wide. With the Netherlands as a kick-off in aug 2018, more countries will follow soon.
MISSION STATEMENT WORLD TANGO SOCIETY
We profile ourselves as an ambitious and open network with respect for the roots, the origin, the different developments and further evolution of the Argentine Tango dance, aimed to make Tango more attractive, to be different and… bring everyone together – ALL styles, ALL levels, ALL nationalities.
How it started
As a group of ambitious dancers we wanted to make a difference. In this way we started at an beautiful 5 star location Kurhaus in Netherlands with open air milongas. Completely free entrance, even without a voluntary contribution. When it became too large and too expensive, we set up this world platform.
Achievements fairy tale so far:
– [Fe]Male invitable dancers – Tanda Aventura …cambio! – Local tango communities – World Tango Congress, the Netherlands (main event on tour) – Tango Beach Festival – the Netherlands
REINVENTING TANGO – JOIN THE FUTURE!
We believe in traditions, but sometimes we also need modifications.
In 2019 we decided to make some crucial steps with the introduction of red ribbons rock and cortinas in the neoroom just simply to make tango more attractive, accessible and friendly, to unite dancers and want you to take home the best experience and memories.
And it worked already pretty well, but of course – that was only the first step, now we need to adapt that concept following many of your feedbacks.
We will continue to improve, set standards and being different. And of course, keep listening to you.
World Tango Society delegates demonstrate a leadership ability and a commitment to contributing to their national (local) Tango Community. They encourage people to participate in this groups interspersed with its cultural heritage. Interested to become an ambassador, click here!
