Win a free pass to NZ Tango Festival!

Post date: Jan 31, 2018 2:49:39 AM

SoTango is very excited to announce that it is giving away a free pass to the NZ Tango Festival!

This is a fantastic tango festival with an amazing line-up of international tango teachers and performers. For a number of years I've been participating in and supporting this festival (including as a guest teacher and performer for two of the festivals). I'll be there again in 2018, and most probably Pablito will too.

Second Step Pass

The 'Second Step Pass' includes a series of 6 workshops plus all festival shows and milongas and is valued at $275. Accomodation and travel is not included.

All workshops and milongas on the pass occur between July 6 - 8 (the main part of the festival). There are immersion courses prior to and after those dates as well for anyone interested. The immersion course by Amelia and Matthew is especially recommended. For more details about the festival go here.

This will be a wonderful and memorable opportunity to improve your tango at an event that draws tango students and aficionados from all over NZ, Australia and internationally.


The second step dancer needs understand tango posture, walking technique, parallel system, know giro pattern, can lead and follow ocho easily, leading/following the cross usually works, can lead and follow simple combinations.

Don't worry if you think you don't meet this criteria yet - there's still a number of months to prepare. What a great incentive to practice and develop your tango!

This prize is exclusively for SoTango students. Anyone who has attended at least one lesson with SoTango in 2017 or 2018 prior to the draw will be eligible to enter.

Here’s what SoTango student Sachin Arora (who won the pass last year) says about his experience of the festival:


"New Zealand Tango Festival was my first major Tango Festival and it was a great learning experience. My knowledge and understanding of social aspects of Tango grew immensely in just those 4 days.  Attending workshops during the day and going to crowded Milongas at night, for me, was like being given a set of guidelines and then thrown in at the deep end. Fortunately, I came out better and cherish that experience to this day. Highly recommended!"
