2011 Puerto Vallarta Tango Festival
Join us for a memorable week in Puerto Vallarta!
Dates: April 11-17
Internationally acclaimed teachers Cecilia Gonzalez and Paulo Araujo will lead small workshops in which participants will receive personal attention. Take classes in both the open and close embrace dancing styles. Saxophone player Blas Rivera will offer participatory lessons in musicality, a highlight of last year's festival.
You will have time to pursue other interests: instruction with renowned sculptor Manuel Palos, sunning on the beach, and exploring local festivities are just a few possibilities.
Classes will be held at La Rosita, which is located in the heart of Puerto Vallarta where the famous Malecón (boardwalk) begins. Vallarta's bustling shops, bars, restaurants, and galleries are all within walking distance. Milongas will be held in exquisite villas with open air floors designed specifically for dancing. They will be thematic and festive, accompanied by live saxophone and bandoneón music.
Come experience this special atmosphere and enjoy the incredible ocean vistas!
