Antwerpen Tango Festival

Performers, teachers and musicians fly over from Argentina for the four day event, which features shows as well as workshops for audiences to participate in.

While this Belgian city is unlikely to conjure up images of couples passionately dancing the tango, it is the setting of the Antwerp Tango Festival. Performers, teachers and musicians fly over from Argentina for the four day event, which features shows as well as workshops for audiences to participate in. As well as performances featuring up and coming talent, established dancers perform to live music and there are lessons for small groups. All the action takes place in the magnificent Zaal AthenA, situated on the top floor of one of the famous buildings of Antwerpen City.

Getting here by train

The journey to the Zaal AthenA couldn't be easier; it lies just 500 metres from the central station in Antwerp. If that's too much for you to walk, there is still the option of taking the number 17 tram from outside the station to Franklin Rooseveltplaats, where the Zaal AthenA is located.
