Over these five days, we will enjoy more than 55 hours of dancing.

Those Milongas are exclusive and only marathon pass owners can attend to those milongas.

We carefully allocate all marathon packages based on our selection criteria, which include a balanced representation of gender and nationality, dance experience, and a positive attitude towards fellow dancers.

We welcome both single and couple registrations. Please note that the type of registration – single or couple – does not influence acceptance. However, do keep in mind that the number of single registrations is limited for both followers and leaders.

Marathon Pass with Accommodation by Us

Marathon pass owners with accommodation can participate in the day & night milongas for the nights that they are staying in the event Hotel.

The minimum is 2 nights for accommodations.

We made deals with 2 different twin hotels (Novotel & İbis). All of the workshops will take place in Novotel.

Novotel is more luxuries option and Ibis is more affordable. Both hotels are 3 min walking distance from main event venue Fişekhane. Here are the prices for both options.

Due to a limited number of rooms with twin beds, we will not offer a ‘find me a roommate’ option this time. You may consider staying in a single room, or alternatively, share a room with a king-size bed with a tango friend.

If your check-in and check-out dates differ from your roommate’s, the one staying longer must pay the extra room cost for the additional nights.

Please note, after the first 60 rooms are booked, hotel policy necessitates an increase in room prices. All price adjustments apply once more than 60 rooms are reserved.

Breakfast is not included in our room rates. However, you can opt for a room upgrade at the registration desk upon arrival.

Accommodation is restricted to tango participants only, with the exception of children aged 0-6 years.

Room bookings for each participant with accommodation will be handled by our registration system.
