Byron Bay Tango Festival 2019 at Byron Theatre & Community Centre

The feast of dance, music and art is on again.

The iconic Byron Bay Community Centre will again be our festival home. A wonderful venue staffed by volunteers and professionals who embody the embracing character of Byron Bay.

This year’s master teachers and performers will be Carolina Giannini and Leonel Di Cocco, a couple who are expanding the boundaries of tango with impressive energy, charm and creativity.  Their Master class and workshops clearly focus on developing your individual creativity, so book early (master class limited to 30 couples).

The Mendoza Tango Quartet has an extraordinary program for us, starting with an extra bandoneon and violin for that additional depth to their wonderful dance pieces. The acclaimed annual Piazzolla Concert will this year feature a recital by concert pianist (and tango dancer) Shan Deng (University of Tasmania), followed by Mendoza, who will be joined by guest guitarist Joe Fallon (Brisbane) for an authentic Piazzolla sound.

7 DJs including Alex Nodelman (Sydney) and Ben Renkin (Byron) will provide memorable music for the milongas and practicas.

Immerse yourself in more creativity with interactive tango art with Jan Rae (Byron), music with Mendoza and tango workshop with Sofia De Latour and Paul Warren (Sydney).

 Dont miss this fabulous weekend where you will live and dream tango!
