( I am sorry, I do not put festivals in the list unless asked )

( Note !!! I link only to FESTIVAL websites and pages, not to regular dance websites. If you want a festival webpage to be linked to, BE CAREFUL IF IT IS IN A FRAME! I will link TO THE PAGE NOT TO THE FRAME !!! It means if you do not have navigation links from your page, user will not be able to navigate to your site ! )

Argentine Tango Festivals are the best way to progress in dancing. They are not as good for beginners as for intermediate and for advanced dancers, but for beginners they are very inspiring. The festival atmosphere when everybody are into Tango is rarely happens on regular milongas. They are true celebrations of spirit when participants are not passive watchers but more than active actors on the scene.

Other good tango links.
