Applying to Attend EMAbq 2024

Encuentro Milonguero Albuquerque 2024 | August 30 — September 1, 2024

EMAbq 2024 will take place at 708 at Fusion over Labor Day Weekend. This is an invitational, attendance-limited, role-balanced encuentro for devoted Milonguero Style dancers. The fee of $185/dancer includes four milongas, a guided practica, our Friday evening meet-and-greet, and Saturday brunch. There are no workshops or performances. We play traditional music, and all attendees are expected to respect the codigos of tango. For a detailed description of the codigos de tango visit the Siempre Milonguero website.

Everyone Must Apply

The deadline for submitting your application form (expression of interest to attend) is Monday, April 16 (11:59pm PDT), 2024. Dancers applying after the deadline will be placed on our waiting list. Application forms will be available in early April and our newsletter subscribers will be notified when they are posted.

Given the current enthusiasm for encuentros, it is unlikely that we will be able to accommodate all dancers who wish to attend. We make a sincere effort to include dancers from diverse geographical regions, experienced milonguero-style dancers who have not attended our encuentro before, and to include single leaders/followers as well as couples.

Please note: We ask that those registering as a couple are life couples (e.g. significant others, spouses, long-time dance partners). On the individual application, we’re asking that you register according to your dominant role. (Individual applicants may also note whether are they willing/able to dance adeptly in either role.)

All applicants: Please be sure to mark that you have read and agree to abide by our 2024 Liability Waiver & Release Agreement.

Next Steps

We will notify you by May 13, 2024 if you are invited to attend, or have been placed on our waiting list. To reserve your place, your payment will be due by May 20, 2024.
