                                Read the BTE program and go to the registration form



Why Bologna?                                                                                                                                                                                        has 4 important things:
Bologna “the Dotta”. The first university in the Western world is born within its walls.
Bologna the “La Grassa”. Everyone knows that in Bologna we eat well. Tortellini, mortadella and ragù are known all over the world.
Bologna the “Rossa”. The color of the plaster used, designed with over 350 shades of red and yellow, is the color of the city walls since the Middle Ages.
Bologna the “Turrita”. Because once there were at least 100 towers in the city.
We hope to let you know and appreciate all this.
Why Encuentro?
When people who come from different cities and countries meet, the best thing that happens is to “get closer” to an immediate sharing and emotion that comes from that thought of tango that everyone carries within himself. We will live all this within “a new story” that we will tell you during the BTE, we will live as in a long embrace until the new year … 2019.
We will dance illuminated by the spectacular lights of the Royal Hotel Carlton in Bologna, which will guarantee warm and sufficient light to see and invite. This is one of the most beautiful hotels in the capital of Emilia, located in the city center and convenient to the C.le Station, but also reachable by car because it is outside the pedestrian area. The 2019 BTE will take place in the “Parakultural” of the prestigious Hotel, we will dance in a 300 sqm track that will guarantee the comfort necessary for this great event at the end of the year. All in one location, those who want to stay in the hotel that houses the encuentro. We invite you to respect the patrol and style of the event, invitation with the mirada (the look) and the cabeceo (nod with the head).

Bologna Tango Encuentro, being there will be engaging, participating will be exciting.

Tango… the dialog of two souls….: BTE 2019.
