Riga Autumn tango marathon, October 8-12

Dear friends!

The registration for the Riga Autumn Tango Marathon 2020 will be open on June 15 at 15:00 (Riga time)!

As we all know, the situation world-wide becomes more and more stable. In Latvia, state of emergency is over and the restrictions are eased. Gradually, Latvia starts to open borders; international flights start to operate again; culture, entertainment, sports, and other facilities start to open their doors.

☝ In accordance to the current situation, we open the event for up to 120 dancers. If we see that Latvia continues to reduce restrictions enough for bigger events, we will extend the number of participants.

But for now, save the date – registration will be open on June 15 at 15:00 (Riga time)!
