The Ballhaus Rixdorf, built in 1910, is located on the border of the hip districts of Kreuzberg and Neukölln. The infamous ballrooms have a glorious tango history and regularly serve as EMBRACE venues.
This year the “Rix” serves as a festival center for the 2nd BERLIN OPEN Tango Contest, which invites you to the Gran Milonga on Friday evening. All contest rounds (qualification, semi-finals and finals) take place here until Sunday.
Dance the night away with music by DJ Guillermo Monti and the Berlin Tango Community Orchestra. The ensemble consisting of both professional and amateur musicians has become a musical institution in the Berlin Tango scene, loved by the dancers due to their broad repertoire played in the styles of the original orchestras.
Sebastián Jimenez, the 2010 tango world champion, and his partner Joana Gomes, and Magdalena Myszka, the popular Maestra from Warsaw, and the Metropolitano Campeón Ariel Taritolay from Buenos Aires will be performing.
