5 Years ago i received the key of De Danswerkplaats and invited Michelle Marsidi and Joachim Dietiker for a festive opening. After this wonderful event the idea developed to create an evening with hours and hours of dancing, with the best marathons and encuentro’s DJ’s to give dancers an “at home marathon feeling” for just one night. The idea was good and La Roca is now a renowned milonga.

To celebrate 5 years La Roca I invited Michelle and Joachim back. They will give workshops and a masterclass seminar (on invitation only) and will perform.

But…. since Solo Tango was such a big hit at my 15-year anniversary festivalito june 2017 i want to make this weekend a real festival weekend and invited them back too. They play saturday AND sunday evening.
