To Tango Encuentro, the meaning of the word Encuentro in Spanish translates to, a meeting point or gathering, in this case Hobart, Tasmania October 2016, a place for Argentine Tango aficionados to share their passion and dance together socially. Our aim is to bring together tango dancers from across Australia and beyond to enjoy social dancing in a friendly environment and to experience what Argentine Culture has to offer.

Join us for three days of Social Dancing, Workshops and Exhibitions. Be inspired by our guest DJ's playing a great selection of music from the Golden Age of Tango.

Immerse yourself in this Tango weekend and take the opportunity to meet new Tango friends and reconnect with some old ones and at the same time your chance to explore Hobart, one of the most picturesque cities in the world.
