TangoSafari Lago d´Orta - Piedmond | northern Italy | 13 to 20 Sept. 2020 - canceled

Due to the confusion of rules and regulations and the associated risk for organizers, we unfortunately had to decide to also cancel the TangoSafari Lago d`0rta.

After consultation with the Centro d`Ompio, it is possible to book a room directly with the Centro and go on private vacation there. As we have heard, there are some interested people who would be happy to meet like-minded tango friends. The event room will be available to those present and you can plan your free time on your own responsibility. The area invites you to wonderful hikes, relaxation by the pool or you can finally dance a tango with your partner. Ulrich will definitely be there and looks forward to meeting familiar faces.

If you are interested, book your room directly at the Centro. To find out which rooms are available, take a look at our accommodation page. Prices for accommodation and meals on request can be obtained directly from Loredana and the friendly team of the Centro d`Ompio. https://ompio.org/de/

This is the originally planned program:

Explore tango – spruce up your body with bodywork | milongas in the daytime & in the night | more that 10 teachers, about 15 workshops daily | a lot of fun and exchange | single dancers welcome

The focus will be – apart from tango, of course – on different methods of bodywork to support your tango in a magnificent way. An excellent team will join you on your journey – and provide you with an exciting programme. Single dancers are most welcome – we'll make sure there's a balanced share of leaders and followers.

Lodging, catering & information about the venue

The TangoSafari base is the beautiful seminar center "Centro d'Ompio" in Piedmont, located directly on the Lago d'Orta (about 50 km north of Milan).

The Centro d'Ompio is like a green oasis in the mountains with a direct view of the Lago d`Orta. We have several dance halls with wooden floors, a bodywork dome. an outdoor dancing tent, a large terrace with a huge pool, a fireplace, wide meadows, waterfalls in the immediate vicinity and delicious food - the ideal environment for a varied and exciting safari of the senses with lots of Tango.

Map of the area

Übersichtsplan der gesamten Anlage (zum Vergrößern bitte klicken) / Map of the whole area (click to increase)Übersichtsplan Haupthaus / Map MainhouseThe facility is divided into two main areas:

On the one hand the main house with some rooms, the dance pavilion & bodywork dome, the dining area, the large terrace with pool and dance tent as well as the massage dome, some areas for campers and the dorm. The Tango Workshops and the big Milonga every evening take place in the dance pavilion. On the outdoor dance floor at the pool we meet for the daily Milonga Aperitivo.

The second large building complex is the "Casa Felicina" about 10-15 minutes walk away below the main house. There are further rooms with a simpler standard as well as an additional large dance hall with anteroom for chilling and chatting.

The whole area is embedded in the green and you feel like in the jungle. We sleep in double or shared rooms, in tents or dormitory or in our own camper. Single room accommodation is only possible externally due to the limited number of rooms. 

Programme - TangoSafari @ Centro d´Ompio at Lago d´Orta

New location = extended concept

Even if you are not interested in workshops there is the possibility to dance almost around the clock. Additionally to the Milongas during the nights there will be a "Milonga Aperetivo" (Tango enquentro) during the day time with internationally known DJs during the day.

At the tango café you have the opportunity to dance, train and share. And if you just do not feel like tango, you can relax by the pool, take a boat trip on the lake or make a trip to the diverse nature.

Workshop friends of all levels will rediscover the Tango and their body lead by competent & engaging teachers.

You can expect a unique time at a unique place.
