Dear TangoForge friends,
2024 is the 10 year anniversary of the meeting of Vio y Roberto.
We have reflected about how to celebrate this and we realize that biggest possibility for delight and development is to help you, our students and friends, to meet and dance with one another. All of our students tell us “I want to dance with more people who have TangoForge training.” So here’s the chance to meet them. The celebration of our meeting is for you to meet.
We want to make the event focused and relaxed, without all the logistical distractions of being in a city. We invite you for a 3-day weekend centered at our house in Southern France. 
Because we know that when we are teaching during a weekend, we are too exhausted to also dance with students afterward, there will be no workshops. We want to have energy to play and dance with everyone! When you arrive here it will be just dancing and eating wonderful French food all day and night.
For those who do want some pedagogical input as part of your visit, there are two options: You can arrive in the days before to help us set up the dance floor and have free lessons. Or you can also stay after the weekend for lessons without working.
We want you to know that we chose this time of year because it’s the most beautiful and comfortable for Southern France. There are daffodils in the forest and blossoms on the fruit trees, it’s not too hot, there are no bugs, and clear views of the snowy Pyrénées.
We also want you to know that every time we teach, we remark on how unusual are the dancers who are attracted to TangoForge. For reasons we don’t fully understand, our students are extraordinarily gentle, open, curious, self-aware, committed, and respectful. This is why we so strongly urge you to make this your priority event for 2024. As our meeting transformed our lives and art, we will do our best to create the setting for you to get to know one another, both on the dance floor and at sumptuous tables. 

Love & Art,
Roberto y Vio 


The dance floor is 200m2 covered with big windows for fresh air and a view of the valley. We have a wood sub-floor and will be installing a smooth wood-composite dance floor formerly used in a theater. This floor accommodates pivoting in sneakers as well as protection for your most beautiful stilettos. 
Music will start at 10:00 each morning and continue until the last couple departs. We have no noise restrictions and the dance floor can stay open as long as you are on it. 
Please note this is not a neo marathon. We will offer a mix of music including sessions of traditional tango, sessions of alternative tango, and sessions with mixed music. We aim for a schedule of sessions that gives full and equal respect to dancers who prefer traditional music and alternative music. 
We invite participants to volunteer to DJ and we will also ask some DJ friends to join us remotely by creating special sessions just for this event. 

Our house accommodates 20 persons on real beds in shared rooms with shared bathrooms. We imagine solo dancers taking these rooms and we will organize the bedrooms and bathrooms by gender.

For people who want a private room and probably for the couples, we provide a selection below of nearby accommodation at different levels of luxury. We’ll be adding more locations as we find them.

If you’re having trouble finding what you want, or you need help booking in French, please just ask us for help. Use the chat button below or send an email.

  • Answering questions and helping people while they are here. 
  • Arrivals and departures coordination leading up to the event.

The Rendez-Vous is located in countryside near the village of Montbernard, France. 

The nearest large city is Toulouse.

You may fly to Toulouse Blagnac airport (TLS). From there we will do our best to coordinate arrival and departure transportation to Chez Rendez-Vous.

You can also take a €9 shuttle to the main train station, Matabiau, and have a look at the city of Toulouse.

From train station Toulouse Matabiau you may take bus 365 for €2 directly to our road. The stop is Montbernard-La Vierge. We pick you up from there.

If you are traveling by train instead of air, please book to Boussens, where we will pick you up by car. This is much nicer for you and easier for us than pickup in Toulouse.
