2023 Helsinki Milonga Weekend #8
What happens after the splendour of Northern autumn colours has faded?
Goodbye red-and-gold foliage, goodbye daylight...
Welcome November, the ugliest month of the year!
We're not afraid of you, not anymore, because we have the perfect antidote: the Helsinki Milonga Weekend!
As the autumn turns into winter, the Finnish tango community invites you to spend a warm weekend of lovely dancing with friends in Helsinki. Who cares what it's like outside? Come and share moments of joy with us - just when we need them the most!
The concept is simple but brilliant:
A series of milongas chained together with local but well-known DJs, no registration required.
Tangon iloa syksyn pimeimpiin iltoihin! Helsingin tangoyhteisö kutsuu kaikki vieraat läheltä ja kaukaa El Aticoon viettämään lämmintä ja kodikasta tanssiviikonloppua säätä uhmaten.
Tapahtuma koostuu sarjasta milongoja, joissa soittavat paikalliset DJ:t. Ennakkoilmoittautumista ei tarvita.
