What's so special about a Salsa Marathon?

A dance marathon concentrates, as the name implies, on dancing. A concept of an event that emerged from the tango scene and spreads quickly in the Salsa scene. Non-stop dancing from start to finish. No shows, no workshops that interrupt, but just dancing! Whether you dance the whole day or just throughout the day or evening, you choose your times and breaks, just as you like best.

The marathon starts on Friday evening and lasts until the early morning hours. Immediately after the brunch, the afternoon continues directly until the next morning. And on Sunday, repeat the same thing, before the marathon ends with the After Party at Corrientes on Sunday evening.

Marathons are much smaller than festivals, which creates a cozy and relaxed atmosphere and gives you the opportunity to get to know your dance partners more. Food and drinks are included in a marathon, so you can dance as long as your feet can stand it. Another advantage of a marathon: when registering, you indicate whether you are dancing in the leading or following role. Both roles are limited - 60 followers and 60 leaders. So the relation between leader and follower while dancing is balanced. And the number of participants is limited to a maximum of 120 dance enthusiasts.
