Majowa Szkoła Tańca and May Tango Festival


Long, long time ago, there was Majowa Szkoła Tańca. There were people there with a passion that prevented them from living a life of supposedly normal people.

That’s the story of May Tango Festival in short. The event erected from the admiration for tango. Made of it and for it. We happy to gather fans of tango in our silesian tango motherland.

May Tango Academy is about, above all, the atmosphere, emotions and people. Here everyone feels like home. Here we want to share a simile and joy of dancing with everyone. These are the ingredients of our Festival. Because that’s what we want to give to you, our Dear Guests.
