Step into winter tango fairytale

WHERE MAGIC IS JUST AN EMBRACE AWAY...

AdvenTango: Zagreb Tango Experience is the dream child of Ivan Terrazas and Sara Grdan. Conceived from a desire to advance a tango community that is inclusive, tolerant, multifaceted, supportive, and above all, fun, the focus of the festival is to promote diversity in dance styles, strong teaching and an environment which encourages continuous learning and simply, great dancing! AdvenTango is our way of making this dream a reality. And since a fun, magical event should take place in a fun, magical city, during a fun, magical time, we have chosen Zagreb at Advent to be the home of our very special tango experience. We hope you will join us for some warm hugs in a snowy city, and enjoy everything that tango, and Zagreb, have to offer. Register to take part in the magic!

Imagination piqued, horizons broadened, lessons learned

Inspiring dancers to continue their education is close to our hearts – dancers who take classes and practice form stronger social bonds with each other, improve skill levels, and generally enjoy dancing more. To encourage all of you to take the plunge, we are offering a variety of learning formats focusing on social dance and musicality: a progressive Women’s Technique and Musicality Seminar, a plethora of single workshops and curated recommended workshops groups. Festival classes are there to inspire, enlighten, raise questions, and provoke. Join us and help make our community a better place to dance, one new idea at a time!

CONTRAPUNTO

What separates tango from other social dances is the complexity of improvisation and musicality while connecting with a wide variety of known and new partners.

Though popular in some circles, traditional tango competitions do not put a premium on these very specific skills…

So we decided to change this and to spice things up a bit at Adventango! We proudly present to you CONTRAPUNTO, the first tango game ever!

How does it work?

It’s very simple. Dancers register, dance tango with different partners and are evaluated individually; all dance styles are encouraged; rankings are based on scores from a random selection of partners over several partner changes; and in the final, partners anonymously rank each other in addition to the judges’ results.

Enter CONTRAPUNTO to have fun, enjoy, meet new people, and live a little bit on the edge. And of course, the prizes are pretty cool too! Just ask the happy contestants from last year’s adventure.
