Breaking Barriers: Philadelphia Tango Festival 2022 will take place from Thursday, June 2 through late night Sunday, June 5, 2022. The festival will celebrate the contributions of women to tango and features an all-female teaching staff, for the first time in our festival’s 10-year history:
Ines Muzzopappa & Gaby Mataloni
Carla Marano & Phi Lee
Each of these women has made lasting, transformational contributions to the art form of tango. Indeed, the tango we dance today, and the tango communities that we enjoy, would not be what they are without the contributions of each of these women.
Breaking Boundaries has offerings for EVERYONE. The festival includes learning opportunities for beginners through professional dancers, for leaders and followers, for men and women.
The festival also features LIVE MUSIC EVERY NIGHT and presents, for the first time EVER in the United States:
Singer / guitarist Juan Villarreal
Guitarist Patricio Crom
In addition to workshops and milongas, the festival includes a daily offering (lecture, panel discussion or Long Table discussion) allowing participants to collectively explore, re-imagine and co-create what tango is today and where it’s going.
Update 9/17/21: The festival website is in the process of being built / updated. Please check back in a few days for complete information.
