Welcome to the 3rd Spring Tango in ……
The location has changed to the beautiful wine district of MARTINBOROUGH!!
a celebration of Argentine tango and your chance to dance all weekend
under the spell of tango music brought to you by DJs from around NZ.
Spring Tango in Martinborough brings together
international and local dancers for the pleasure of social dancing.
As usual there will be no teaching, no performances.... just fun social dancing!
The Martinborough region is famous for its Pinot Noir grapes and gorgeous vineyards. Hire a bike in Martinborough and ride around the 20 vineyards within short cycling distance! Wine tasting, Rapaki and Palliser Vineyards walk, Marty Mural Trail, Cape Palliser, Featherston shopping and Art Galleries - it's all on offer!
We have kept the price low at $110 for the entire weekend to enable you to add Spring Tango in Martinborough to your annual tango calendar.

There are many options for accommodation in the South Wairarapa Region.
The Wairarapa website has lots of ideas: click here to navigate your way through the region. But remember all the events are in Martinborough so make sure you can get from your accommodation to the hall …. or hire a bike for the weekend! it is very flat around here!!

have some ideas about accommodation if you can find some people you want to share with - Renting a house for the weekend is probably the most cost effective way to stay!
