San Diego Tango Festival
In this, its 13th year, the annual San Diego Tango Festival is back with five full days of workshops with award-winning instructors, and milongas (read: tango dance parties) with world-renowned DJs, as well as two milongas bookending the main event. Promoted as a festival where “we take our tango seriously, but not TOO seriously,” they promise a professional atmosphere in regards to crowd flow on the dance floor (‘cause that’s a serious thing, it would seem!) but also some serious fun. This year, the action runs from December 27 to January 1, 2020 at the Wyndham Bayside hotel, with a NYE Celebration Milonga ending at 6 a.m. There are also four beginner’s evening classes over the weekend with a free intro class on Friday.
