Welcome to Tango on the Rocks 2021!
September 3rd-6th 2021
We are planning on holding Tango on the Rocks over Labor Day weekend, September 3rd-6th, 2021. Details are still in the works, but at this point our intention is to hold an Immunity Event. This means that we can accept those who are vaccinated or who have had a recent positive antibody test. We have consulted with a leading expert in Covid research, and it is his recommendation that if everyone in the room has antibody or vaccine-induced immunity, it should be safe for the festival to proceed essentially as normal. It goes without saying that as we come closer to the date and as more facts emerge, the specifics may be subject to change. However, we are cautiously optimistic that we can run the festival in a way that stays true to our vision of the event.
The biggest change over years past is that we will only be able to accept pre-registrations, which is to say, no drop-ins. Likewise, it is presently too early for us to know what (if any) attendance restrictions the City of Denver may impose. Our hope is that by the end of summer, case numbers in Denver will be low enough to permit for an essentially full gathering, but we may be forced to cap attendance at a lower number than we would like.
The good news is that we plan to have Trista Brophy and her magical team of cooks back to provide food for the weekend (which is at least 80% of the reason everyone comes each year), as well as live music, performances, and a full complement of classes and milongas. We will also have vendors, so you can blow all the money you've saved on tango shoes over the last year in a single weekend.
