Welcome to the 8th Bergen Milonga Weekend!

May is considered the loveliest month of the rainy Bergen year. It is a great time to see the city, and (as all four seasons) to be dancing inside.

The concept is geniously simple. Four long milongas, no registration, wonderful music and a lot of dancing. We will again ask everyone to change partners during cortinas. This ensures that all dancers are free at the same time, and increases the chance for everybody to enjoy lots of lovely dances. Please note that, as there is no registration, there is also no guarantee of role balance.

VENUES: Litteraturhuset (Østre Skostredet 5) and Tango Abrazo (Jekteviken 5). Both are in the centre of Bergen.

We will attempt to find private accommodation for visitors. Contact: milongaweekend@gmail.com
