The two couples of maestros who teach during the workshops usually do not—nor do they need to—share the same dance technique or aesthetics. This diversification is purposeful and results in great benefits for the students.

Completing the workshops, participants begin to understand that there is one tango and that different techniques have a common source. This combination allows them to make independent choices as to the foundations of their own way of dancing.

Both teaching couples use similar methodics, which explore the detailed mechanics of movement and lead to the understanding of the origins of movements.

Tango Challenge is the very place where we can analyze how our bodies behave when leading or following, and achieve truly organic motility.

workshops in a palace

The workshops take place in Wydawnictwo Kurtiak i Ley which designs and prints artistic hand-made books. It is a very exclusive venue with two sunny rooms for dancing.

chillout in a garden

We are lucky to have an amazing old garden just for us to chill, dance or stretch. The garden also has a sauna which we enjoy every evening.

intensive learning

With multiple hours of classes and practice as well as continuous access to 4 teachers and their feedback, you will quickly notice a change in the quality of your dancing.

the beach

Gold sandy beaches just 20 minutes by car from the workshops venue. We always choose the wildest parts with no tourists to chill or train together. If you are into a seaside crowd, fresh fish, or amazing sweets, visit the coastal town Mielno.

fast learning methods

We are crazy about fast and effective tango learning methods.  During Tango Challenge we share our authorial methodics of tango learning based on Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences theory. 

milongas

Every day.
In the garden, on a beach, in a restaurant... we try to make it interesting. On the last night we usually hold a final gala milonga with shows of all the teachers.
