Tango Holidays with Alja & Sašo – summer 2019 edition

Veržej, August 17 – 21, 2019


  • almost 8 hours of tango per day
    • 4h classes (morning and afternoon)
    • 1.5h privapractica (individual work with each participant during practica)
    • 2h milonguita (both socializing and practice)
  • for any dancer
    • maximum eight couples: a small group guarantees rapid progress
    • for all levels except complete beginners
    • also suitable for participants of the previous tango holidays
  • eternal topic: technique and musicality
    • (deepening) the fundamentals of bodywork and communication technique
    • learning about musical structure of tangos and investigating our own musicality
    • applying the technique to musical interpretation: for us, technique is at the service of musicality!
  • beautiful venue
    • the mansion of Marianum Institute Veržej (also the home of Festivalito Rural)
    • our very own dance hall for classes, practice and milongas


Tango Holidays take place at the Marianum Institute Veržej, a Salesian cultural, spiritual and handicrafts centre specialized in work with youth. The centre includes a pension (like a hostel, but each room has a bathroom) and several rooms for seminars — most important for us, also a lovely dance hall.
