Every two years, Tango in the Spring attracts Argentine tango dancers from across Australia to Canberra to simply enjoy dancing together to beautiful music. In 2020, we postponed for obvious reasons, but we are delighted to be back in 2022.
We will make the upcoming Tango in the Spring a renewed celebration of tango, with gorgeous music and lovely dancing. We hope to see many old tango friends return, and welcome even more new ones.
Since the inception of Tango in the Spring in 2008, we have had the same goal: social tango nirvana! For us, that means a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, good traditional tango music from experienced DJs, excellent sound quality, a comfortable and attractive venue with good lighting, and allocated seating for everyone.
The four main milongas will be at the elegant Albert Hall in Canberra — high ceilings, parquet floor. You will get a warm welcome from the Canberra tango community as well as Tango in the Spring regulars. Activities start on Friday evening with our welcome milonga, and end on Monday afternoon with our farewell milonga – with plenty of dancing and social opportunities in between. The Monday is a public holiday in some states, and even if not for you: stay anyway!
"I had an amazing time, again! My favourite Australian festival for sure."
"Each time I think TISP can’t get any better, but it does!"
"It was absolutely amazing! It was my first festival, and I loved every single moment … the best four days I've had in years, and I was so saddened to return to real life!"
