Tango Arcón is organizing a "half marathon" of argentine tango again! We dance around the clock in the beautiful Aalto hall designed by Alvar Aalto, a famous Finnish architect. It is situated in the very center of Jyväskylä and is a sight in itself. No registration, just come as you are ! However we hope you mark yourself as "attending" in the FB-event. Address is Väinönkatu 7, Jyväskylä.

Obviously we start our day with Mr Aalto, dj Jari Aalto. Dj Dani El (Chile) entertains us during the evening milonga and in the night dj -battle between Jenni Valli and Emma Murros keeps us going!

A brunch with a glass of sparkling wine is a nice way to start the day milonga. A night snack is served around midnight . Alcohol is not sold during the marathon – you can bring some with you.

The venue Aalto - hall is a work of world famous architect Alvar Aalto. It was his first remarkable design for a public building . The hall was completed in 1925. This hall is a sight in itself and the floor is made for dancing!
