A relaxed tango social over 7 days with friends old and new. Less frenetic hours than a typical marathon, yet LOT more opportunities to dance with your old friends and make new ones.
In the historic and charming Colvin Run Dance Hall in the suburbs of Washington, DC.
Registration will open at 3:00 PM EDT on Monday, October 23.
Yes, because of space/seating limitations, registration for Tango Holiday will be limited to 160 dancers.
Partially. 80 of the 160 slots will be available for open registration on a first-come-first-serve basis with the following requirements:
  • Open registration is only for couples (a leader and a follower)
  • One of the couple has to be a dancer active in the Washington DC area (includes all of the beltway, immediate suburbs, Baltimore, Annapolis - anywhere within a 60 mile radius from DC) (meaning their tango home is the greater Washington DC area). The other person in the couple has to be from at least 100 miles away from DC (meaning their tango home is not the Washington DC area).
The pandemic has changed people's living/working arrangements and their dance routines. Just living in the DC area does not automatically qualify you as a DC dancer. The registration is open to dancers who have been actively dancing as part of the DC tango scene within the previous year. If you are not sure if you quality, please check with us before registering.

We reserve the right to cancel and refund any registration that does not meet the above criteria. All refunds are subject to $25 servicing fees.
The other 80 slots will be filled by staff (DJs, volunteers), old friends & new blood from DC and beyond to ensure balance and diversity (geographic, demographic, experience, etc.).
Email us and we will try to find you a partner (no guarantees).
No. To ensure role-balance and to not exceed venue capacity, no walk-ins will be allowed.
No. Registration is an all or nothing pass.
Tango Holiday pass includes admission to all dancing over 7 days (12 milongas including the New Year's Eve milonga).
Your information, your partner's information (first name, last name, email, city & state/country) and a method of payment for your registration. Once your registration is complete, both your spots are on hold for 72 hours until your partner completes his/her registration.
Your registration will be canceled and you will be issued a full refund (minus $25 USD servicing fees).
We have a very reasonable cancellation policy - You can cancel and get a full refund up to 2 weeks before the start of the event. You may cancel your registration for any reason before 11:59 PM EST on Monday, December 12, 2023 for a full refund (minus $25 USD servicing fees). No refunds after December 12, 2023.
Your partner will have to find a replacement (subject to the same conditions as listed above) within 72 hours after cancellation.
Let us know and we will try to accommodate your request. It is not our intention to separate couples but to get a diverse mix of people from DC and beyond.
We will provide catered brunches on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Join us and your fellow dancers in the communal meal for some off-the-floor camaraderie.

And we will provide water, hot tea, coffee (espresso & regular) and plenty of snacks - sweet & savory, healthy & decadent - throughout the week. Anything else, feel free to BYO.
Tango Holiday is a LONG and relaxed weekend of dancing - drawn out over 7 days! With limited registration and no walk-ins, you will see a finite set of dancers during Tango Holiday. If your idea of a good time involves dancing around and socializing, you are VERY likely to have a GREAT time dancing tango during the holidays!
