Riga Summer tango marathon 2021, July 22-26

Dear friends!
We are glad to announce that Riga Summer Tango Marathon 2021 will take place as planned.
Thank you for your trust, enthusiasm, and patience while, together with us, waiting for the news from the Latvian government.
As the government has announced, vaccinated people and people who recovered from COVID-19 from various countries can enter Latvia.
Therefore,
📍 if you have a valid vaccination certificate OR proof that you have recovered from COVID-19 within the last six months
📍 AND you arrive from the European Union, the European Economic Area, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, low and high-risk third countries
YOU CAN ENTER LATVIA, STAY IN LATVIA WITHOUT SELF-ISOLATION, AND PARTICIPATE IN EVENTS.
IMPORTANT: if individuals don't have such certificates, they still can enter Latvia (if they enter Latvia from the EU, the EEA, Switzerland, the UK, and low-risk countries) but will need to present a valid COVID-19 test and stay in self-isolation.
👉 Here is the list of low and high-risk countries: https://www.spkc.gov.lv/.../valstu-saslimstibas-raditaji... (scroll down for information in English).
UPD: the REGISTRATION for Riga Summer Tango Marathon 2021 is already CLOSED. However, you still can register for the WAITING LIST: https://argtango.eu/rigasummertangomarathon/ (Marathon pass = 85 EUR).
We once again are grateful to the Bellevue Park Hotel, which offered us the opportunity to have this Extra Edition.
🌼🌼🌼
So, what can you expect to have at our marathon?
- many hours of dancing from July 22 to 26, 2021;
- gender-balanced event;
- super-cozy living and energetic dancing at the same venue - 4* Bellevue Park Hotel Riga: Slokas iela 1, Rīga, https://hotelbellevue.lv/;
- over 400 sq. m. hall with wooden dance floor cover;
- and, of course, same friendly and crazy organizers 🙃
💛 WE ARE VERY MUCH LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU! 💛
🌼🌼🌼
BEFORE YOU FILL IN THE REGISTRATION, please note: Registration is possible only by registering on our web page (https://argtango.eu/). Clicking “I am going” on Facebook will not be considered as registration.
We kindly ask you - do not book the hotel and flights before you receive the final confirmation of participation. We kindly ask you to read TERMS AND CONDITIONS before you fill in the registration form: www.argtango.eu/termsconditions
At the marathon, we emphasize the traditional social tango etiquette, dance by following the ronda flow, invitations by mirada and cabeceo and clear floor during cortinas. This marathon is an event without separate seating for men and women. Our tango community understands and values the ‘consent culture’. This means that we act and dance respecting each other’s boundaries.
To respect the current rules established by the government, we have to cancel pre-party and after-party this time.
As usual, we recommend you to stay in the Bellevue Park Hotel Riga (Slokas iela 1, Rīga, https://hotelbellevue.lv/); here you can enjoy the party in full – with the opportunity to live and to dance at the same venue.
💛💛💛
Stay tuned for more info!
Yours,
Olga, Diana, Audrius
