El Contrapunto – Queer & Open Role Tango Marathon Berlin

16-18 May, 2025

About | Registration | Venue | DJs | Live Music

A weekend where embraces matter and stereotypes are optional.

Berlin has a flourishing queer & open role tango scene, including the milongas Atípica, MilongAMIGÅ, Tango zum Glück, Weibermilonga and the annual Queertango Festival. It also harbors a diverse tango scene in general, with 2 to 9 milongas every day of the week. We invite you here, to return or to arrive for the first time, and to share your tango with us.

El Contrapunto is a tango marathon for queer and open role dancers of varying levels of experience and diverse styles of dancing. We value a social, cheerful atmosphere as well as a respectful ronda.

Save the date!

Thanks so much to everyone who made our premiere in 2024 such a sparkling feast of embraces. Save the date for the next time!

Ballhaus Kuchus, also called Ahorn-Club, with its wooden floor will be home to our dancing feet. It’s a historic ballroom, built in 1908 and located in Berlin-Kreuzberg, close to the city center. The venue has been host to tango before, including a queer dancing school. We are immensely looking forward to welcoming you there!
