Registration starts May 21!

In 2018 our tango marathon will take place in November, from 8 till 12. 

Belarus tango trip — a joint event of Argentine tango studio «Tango Time» and the National Historical and Cultural Museum-Reserve «Nyasvizh». The event is intended to unite all those who love the Argentine tango dance and dreams of an unforgettable tanda not only in the current capital city of Minsk, but also to feel the greatness of the 16th century, plunged into the atmosphere of the cultural capital city Nesvizh.

Nesvizh Castle (1 hour by car from Minsk) included into the UNESCO World Heritage List, holds a lot of ancient secrets and mysteries. It was built in the 16th century as a residence of the well-known Belarusian family Radzivill. They were the uncrowned kings of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Nesvizh Castle is in some way unique. It is the only magnate’s residence in Europe that was completely preserved. The inside decoration of the castle astonished the guests with its splendor. There were 170 rooms in total. The most fascinating halls, decorated by the priceless arms collections and rare works of art were called the Royall Hall, the Golden Hall, the Marble Hall, the Hunting Hall and the Arms Hall. Moreover, Nesvizh Castle is home for the most famous Belarusian ghost – “The Black Lady”or the spiit of Barbara Radzivill. According to the legend the mother of Sigizmund ll Augustus, the King of Poland, poisoned her daughter-in-law, Barbara, because she wanted to find match for her son. Since then the mysterious Black Lady is wandering at the castle. The ghost comes at night as a warning about coming tragedies.

The basic concept of our event — to combine tango marathon together with the immersion into the atmosphere of the main attractions of our country. Therefore, our guests will have the opportunity not only to dance on a beautiful dance floor, but also book a tour of the palace and park ensemble, historic sights and touch the greatness of world-famous castles. The program of the event includes dancing on Thursday, Friday and Monday in Minsk, and Saturday and Sunday in the Nesvizh Castle. Nesvizh is 1 hour by car from Minsk. We also organize transfer, accommodation and food for our guests.

OUR DJs

Giuseppe Clemente (Italy)

He loves all Tango music, from the beginning to the present; as DJ, he prefers the «Golden years» of Tango but carefully follows the atmosphere and the situation of the dance floor. In the recent years he was a regular DJ at nearly all of the Milongas in Rome. He is the resident DJ at La Milonga del Barrio. Giuseppe was invited to DJ at the following Special Evenings and Festivals: Buenos Aires (Confiteria Ideal, Salon Canning — Porteño y Bailarin, Practica 10, La Baldosa, Zona Tango, Unitango Independencia) Amsterdam, Athens, Belgrade, Beirut, Cracow, Creta, Cyprus, Dubai, Dublin, Helsinki, Istanbul, Lillehammer, Moscow, Oslo, Paris, Prague, Riga, San Petersburg, Stockholm, Tallinn, Tel Aviv, Vienna, Vilnius, Warsaw and Italy: Bari, Catania, Cosenza, Latina, Naples, Perugia, Rome, Sorrento, and more.

 

Michał Gabryś (Poland)

«I have been dancing and running a tango school in Cracow for more than 10 years. Half a year into my tango adventure I started DJ-ing at milongas, wanting to dance to music that I like. The tastes are liable to change, however, and the moods are fickle, therefore I try to play a varied selection of songs and concentrate on the dynamics of their succession. The Golden Age’s tangos are my favourite and I love traditional milongas. What I also find important is the tone, especially when sometimes, in certain melodies, I find that fleeting, momentary beauty which I want to display.»

 

Sergey Markov (Russia)

My name is Sergey Markov and I’m a tango dj. I started my activity in this field in 2010 at the milonga in café “Gazeta”.  Since then I managed to work in most of the St. Petersburg milongas. Besides, as a dj I put music on city milongas in Minsk and Moscow. I participated in such events as “Tango of the white nights” and “Navidad” in St. Peterburg, “Remolino” in Lvov, “TangoRio” in Rostov, Minsk spring tango festival in Minsk, El Abrazo de Riga in Riga.

My passion for tango-DJing was born out of a desire to create an energetic atmosphere at the milonga. I find the drive and powerful energy of tango in the classical compositions of the golden age. At the same time, I try to perceive every milonga as a whole story. A kind of film or performance to which I carefully select the pictures which according to my plan are not only soundtracks to the main action, but also a link between its parts.

I am sure that my work is exclusively for milongueros and there is no doubt that you will have a wonderful dance at my milongas and you will have a great time! And that is the main thing for me!

 

Margarita Usova (Belarus)

«I fell into tango in 2008. It was natural for me not only to have passion for dance and music but also for both teaching and participating in organizing milongas, various events, and studying the history of tango, the variety of orchestras. I started to do my first steps as a DJ when I was in a fairly young tango-age.

The main thing for me, as a DJ, is to pick up music so that the dancers should have positive emotions from tanda to tanda, even if at some particular moment they have rest and talk. On my milonga there is a place for lyrics, for nostalgia, for timid hope, for energetic dances and for shades of passion. I prefer the classical scheme and music, but I can experiment by adding new arrangements and new performers. I want to create a sense of the festival and the presence of live music on every milonga».

 

 Rodion Khramutichev (Russia)

Rodion’s musical taste was shaping and growing alone with his developing as a dancer and a teacher. Initially he started tango attracted by its motion, dancing and contact, but as his understanding of the very culture of tango was growing, he fell in love with music as well. During the last 9 years he participates in Russian and international festivals and marathons as a DJ, pursuing two main goals in this role. On the one hand, it is important for Rodion that people like music and the dancer who come to the milonga do not skip a tanda. On the other hand, he wants to suggest to the audience not only well-known melodies, but more sophisticated music, which richness and profundity are better understood with the growth of the dancing skills. Milonga with Rodion is the full range of emotions and a challenge for each dancer!

Jasmin Muranovich (Austria)

«I’m in love with tango music and there is lots of passion for what I’m doing. During my Dj set the most important for me is to trust my feelings while choosing every tanda and cortina. My task is to create the best danceable mood and use the energy of the dance floor to get more and more inspiration.»

 

 

Konstantin Chireychik (Belarus)

«I prefer music of the mid-20s and of the late-60s. Being a dj and a tango dancer I pay attention to the music that may bring happiness, so that to make every tanda unforgettable.
As a dj I enjoy creating moments when, after hearing the beginning of the tanda, the leader’s eyes light up and he immediately begins to look for somebody with the same enthusiastic feeling of the music so that to create joy and happiness and that unforgettable feeling of music together on the dance floor. My favourite orchestras are Anibal Troilo, Juan D’Arienzo, Fransisco Canaro, Romantica Milonguera»
