Toinen / The Second Helsinki Milonga Weekend! (Rus below)


Tangon iloa talveen!
Tapahtuman idea: Sarja milongoja, joissa soittavat paikalliset DJ:t. Ennakkoilmoittautumista ei tarvita.


As the darkness turns into winter and almost to spring, and the days lighter, the Finnish tango community invites you to spend a weekend of lovely dancing in hopes of giving you a moment of joy to look forward to. There is no Frostbite Tango Festival in 2016 but the same association that is behind it, is behind HMW!


The concept is simple and brilliant:
A series of milongas chained together with local (but still internationally renowned) DJs, no registration required.


Please do not mark yourself as “Going/Attending” until you are sure you are coming – until that point mark yourself as “Interested”. We thank you for your cooperation!
