Ashland Oregon Labor Day Tango Grape-Escape

Festival Concept!Southern Oregon Vineyard

Emphasis for this festival will be on creating a relaxed and friendly setting in which dancers and instructors feel free to commune with one another. Thus there will be no classes. "What!" you say. "No classes!". That's right, no classes--instead each day there will be a two-hour structured/guided practica with over a dozen instructors (see list below) available for you to consult with, ask questions of, and/or book a private with. (Click here for schedule.) Immediately following each practica individual 30-minute lessons for $30 will be available with an instructor of your choice.

In addition, there will be our usual mix of traditional milongas, alternative milongas, all-night milongas, wine tours, and the ever-popular tango parade--all at an incredibly affordable price. (Click here for registration & price.) We feel this structure will encourage the cozy family like atmosphere that dancers have come to know and love best about our Ashland Festivals.
