Connecticut Tango Weekend

Connecticut Tango Weekend is a tango extravaganza which takes place on the third weekend of each March, as a complement to the Connecticut Tango Festival. With its instructors Dale Ellison and Gem Duras, its initial focus is the Argentine Tango Boot Camp which is an intensive afternoon designed to introcude tango to new enthusiasts. The weekend then includes more advanced workshops and tango socials known as “milongas.”

The Connecticut Tango Weekend has successfully introduced hundreds of dancers to the Connecticut Tango Community since its inception in 2010.

The Milford Activities are sponsored by the Milford Arts Council, which also presents weekly tango classes on Mondays at its downtown location, Milford Center for the Arts.

Tango Classes- Every Monday Night


The instructor Gem Duras specializes in Argentine Tango, as it is done in Buenos Aires. He has been dancing tango for 20 years and teaching for 12. Over many years he became familiar with the styles of such important and diverse dancers as Mariano “Chicho” Frumboli, Gustavo Naveira, Susana Miller, Javier Rodriguez, Geraldine Rojas, Osvaldo Zotto, Norberto “Pulpo” Esbrez, Carlos Rivarola Juan Carlos Copes, Dana Frigoli and Milena Plebs. As a result he is able to teach and guide the students in various tango styles such as Salon, Milonguero, Nuevo and beyond.

In the classes the “non-verbal communication” and “partner connection” aspect of tango is emphasized to enable the students to dance with others at local tango events and throughout the world including Buenos Aires. In addition, the students’ strenght and balance is developed through regular exercises. Although Tango Sueño offers choreography and performance classes for more advanced students to train them for weddings, special events and shows, the essence of tango “where the two partners become one” is never forgotten. Gem follows the current trends in tango by visiting Buenos Aires multiple times each year and inviting Argentine guests to the Connecticut Tango Festival which he organizes annually.
