Saturday night will be a neolonga. There’s also a classical open-air milonga.
Sunday and Monday we’ll examine the tango elements which embody consequence: voleos (circular and linear, pro and contra), off-balance movements (volcada, colgada) and salta (jumps, drags, lifts).

We scheduled our workshop alongside the Greek NeoTango Marathon, which takes place at a beach hotel and village, 12-19.Sept
The Marathon warms up on Thursday night but you can have an extra day on the islands and arrive for the first official night on Friday. There will be two dance floors, one indoors with the visuals and the other outdoors with the moon and sea, running through Sunday night.
During the Marathon, if you don’t want to stay in the hotel, organizer Thanos confirms there are lots of nearby airbnb options.
Between the Seminar and the Marathon, we recommend you spend a couple of days exploring Athens or Islands and meet us on the beach for the Athens NeoTango Marathon, 12-16.September. (For island vacations, you can leave Athens by the Port Piraeus, and then return near to the Marathon at Port Rafina).
Registrations received before 1.August include Private Lesson and discount promo code for the Marathon.
