Registration 2023

We carefully check how many people can comfortably dance at each of our venues, and then set different limits for each milonga. What is more, the registration gives us the chance to choose more experienced dancers who are familiar with the ronda and will feel at ease on the dance floor even at the climax of the party.

The first round of registration is open!

Please follow this link to fill out the registration form. Registration closes on Jan 31.

How to get 10% off?

Register as a group and get a discount for all the group members.

  1. The group must include at least four couples. It should be role-balanced (can have one solo follower or leader extra).
  2. If you register as a group, you can be sure that you will all get in together.
  3. Each person n the group can choose a different set of tickets.
  4. The group has to have one organizer. This person will be responsible for registering the group, ordering tickets, and collecting payments from everyone.

How does the registration work?

During the registration rounds (dates below) we collect applications. After the registration is closed, we review them with the role balance in mind. Then we send emails to all those who have registered. Approved participants receive a link to the shop where they can pick the packages and tickets they’d like, and complete the payment.

Why do we have registration in rounds?

  • We believe that a festival can have the quality of a marathon – guarantee comfortable space for dancing, role balance, high level of dancers and variety of nationalities on the dancefloor.
  • The dates of email confirmation of the participation in the festival known in advance facilitate the travel planning, purchase of airplane tickets, and booking of accommodation.
  • Experienced dancers who cannot register for the festival in the first round, will have another chance during the second round.
  • The rounds enable us to determine the period during which the participants can change their decision as to the purchased workshops and milongas.

What kind of dancers are welcome to Krakus Aires?

  • The same number of leaders and followers – we keep the role balance.
  • Experienced dancers who feel easy on a crowded dancefloor and take care of the ronda.
  • Nice people who like to make new acquaintances because they know that the power of tango consists not only in the dancing, but also in the great fun in the bar and foyer.
  • Representatives of various nationalities, which is why you will meet not only your friends but also new people.

Since the festival is very popular and the number of dancers keen to participate is several times higher than the number of available tickets, we wish to select the most interesting dancers from around the world. The process of registration is the least pleasant part of the festival for us because it is very difficult to say ”no” to people whom we often know personally and like in private. Hence, we ask you for understanding and trust that we are only guided by the high quality of the festival and the comfort of people on the dancefloor.
