No date yet, though we plan to have a marathon in 2023!


Dear Marathonians,

with lots of Yin and Yang in our hearts we welcome you to our π˜‹π˜’𝘯𝘀𝘦, π˜‹π˜ͺ𝘯𝘦, 𝘈𝘀𝘡π˜ͺ𝘷𝘒𝘡𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘢𝘳 π˜›π˜’π˜―π˜¨π˜° event on August 27-29, 2021!

Just like you and the almost 200 dancers who have signed up for the marathon, we were really looking forward to an uninterrupted weekend full of dancing. Unfortunately an indoor limit of 50 people is still applying for that weekend and we feel this is not sufficient for a marathon. Not to mention the horrors of only being able to select 50 of you from such a large crowd!

Not dancing however is not an option either for us crazy Tango maniacs πŸ˜‰ so we have worked hard to do the best out of the situation in pandemics time and put together a great package of dancing, socialising and reactivating/improving our Tango.

We hope many of you will join us in August to celebrate life and Tango together. As soon as we have everything together for a new marathon date, we let you know ASAP!

Your GTA Team


Dear Dancers!
We have looked at and studied the new Swedish government Covid roadmap. Unfortunately, the authorities decided to push the possibility for large scale indoor events into September 2021. August will be limited to 50 people for indoor/non-seated events.

With a limit of 50 people, a great marathon atmosphere cannot be created. Therefore, with heavy hearts the marathon must be moved to a later date this year. Negotiation efforts to secure a premise for a late October or November weekend are in full steam. We will update you asap we have all the details for you!

All registrations and early-birds will still be valid for the new date if you choose to accept the change of date!

Please give us time to figure it all out! Everyone who has registered will receive an email once all information is available.

Let us make the best out of it …

RESTART YOUR TANGO August 27-29th! To not let the summer weekend and all the hopes and excitement of dancing again go to waste, we are now planning an event with the allowed max of 50 people.

Detailed information will be out soon. Stay tuned!
