Argentine tango dancing in Bergen
Bergen has a vibrant tango community of more than 100 dancers, and a friendly atmosphere welcoming dancers of all levels. With three weekly milongas there are good opportunities for tango dancing if you are visiting, or have moved here.
Three weekly milongas in Jekteviken 5:
Tuesdays from 20:00 – 23:00 («milonguero milonga» – clear floor in cortinas)
Fridays from 21:00 – 01:00
Sundays from 19:00 – 22:00
We always have a DJ and a host. Entry is 80 NOK (50 if you are a member), and that includes coffee, tea, biscuits and sometimes other snacks.
Where to find us:
The address is Jekteviken 5. Go to the backyard, look for our sign by the gate. 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. We are on the 1st floor, just go towards the beautiful music.

For those who do not read Norwegian the following terms should be enough to make sense out of the calendar:
«Verkstedet» is a guided practica, milonga is social tango dancing, «avlyst» means cancelled, «Nybegynnerkurs» is a beginners course. «Practica» – Thursdays, means people goes to practice with someone they have made arrangements with.
