Bergen has a vibrant tango community of more than 100 dancers, and a friendly atmosphere welcoming dancers of all levels. With three weekly milongas and a rich offer of courses at beginner’s as well as more experienced level, there are good opportunities to dance if you are visiting, or have moved here.
We always have a DJ and a host. Entry is NOK 80 (50 if you are a club member), which includes coffee, tea, light snacks, friendly conversations and nice abrazos.
The address is Jekteviken 5. Look for our Tango Abrazo sign by the gate and enter the backyard. We are in the same house as the Dyrebeskyttelsen, which has a painting of Garfield (the cat) on the wall. The backyard has a car mechanic auto shop, and our entrance is in the corner to the left, by the cat cages. The wardrobe and toilets are downstairs, whereas the dancing takes place on the 1st floor. Just head towards the beautiful music.
If you are a visiting instructor, not resident locally, who wants to offer private lessons in our dance studio in Jekteviken: Please forward your request about this to Tango Abrazo in advance, and we will check if this fits into our plans. You can read the terms and conditions for using Jekteviken for private lessons here.
