The Gavito Tango Festival was a perfect event from every point of view – from breathtaking performances, to countless hours of dancing on the tunes of top-notch DJs, to workshops with some of the world’s top Maestros, all held in the most glamorous venue I’ve ever seen in the US. As on of our table neighbor put it, “If you can only Pick One Tango event to attend per year, The Gavito Festival is the event not to miss”

Had a great time at the Gavito Tango Festival this weekend… Very grateful for the hospitality of Tanya and Dennis and their amazing organization of this tremendous celebration of Tango… Lots of love was felt at this event.


What an incredible weekend it has been at the Gavito Tango Festival, one that will undoubtedly stay etched in our hearts throughout the year. From the very instant we stepped into the exquisite Millennium Biltmore Hotel, we were transported to a world of elegance that perfectly complemented the beauty of Argentine tango. The venue’s classy empire-style architecture provided a captivating backdrop for a weekend brimming with grace and passion. Throughout the festival, with its uninterrupted hours of dancing, captivating performances by the most gifted Maestros, and enriching tango workshops, it was evident that no detail had been spared in the organization. The result was nothing short of excellence! However, beyond the flawless execution of the event, our deepest gratitude goes out to Dennis Cante and Tanya Spektor. They went above and beyond to foster an environment of inclusivity and warmth within the Tango community. It was a place where everyone, regardless of nationality, religion, confession, or orientation, not only felt welcome but truly seen. It’s a beautiful testament to Tango’s ability to unite people from all walks of life. Over the weekend, we had the privilege of forging connections with the dancers from across the United States and even other countries. It’s truly remarkable how Tango can transcend cultural boundaries and continents, enabling us to embrace one another and share the profound joy that flows from one heart to another. In the spirit of unity and harmony, we wish to extend our deepest gratitude once more to the Gavito Tango Festival organizers, Dennis and Tanya, and all the remarkable artists who made this event possible. Thank you for creating a space where Tango transcends borders and enriches our lives with its beauty and passion. Here’s to cherishing the memory of an exceptional weekend and looking forward to the promise of many more tango-filled adventures in the future!

The Gavito Tango Festival was an amazing event. The organizers Tanya and Denni are top notch amazing organizers and think of absolutely everything. Knowing the amazing amount of work and the huge financial risk for minimal if any payback makes it even more outstanding… Great job to all involved in this amazing event. WELL DONE!
