IMPORTANT INFORMATION

What is a tango marathon? 
As it sounds it is a long weekend of almost non-stop dancing. 

What is the difference between a marathon and a festival?
Marathons do not have shows. They have a smaller number of people - usually balanced in gender, eg: 50% men, 50% women 

Who is it for?
Generally Tango Marathons are for advanced dancers who just wish to dance and are not interested in classes and shows that you find at festivals. There is usually a limited number of people so there is more space to dance, and in general the dancers are from many countries and of a high level.

About Athens Tango Marathon & Participants:
– Number of participants is limited to 250
– Marathon will be gender balanced 50/50.
– A Welcome Programme and infos will be at the Registration Desk
– Snacks and refreshments are for free during the Marathon
(coffe, tea, water, and sweet cakes, etc.)
– Professional photographer will be among us during the Marathon 
– 24/7 Informational support & help from the organizing Team
- The online registration is a must!
