GRAND GALA BALLS:

 

For the Grand Gala Balls Tango Vita has invited renowned tango teachers and performers.

They all have prestigious careers, and have been recognized around the world for their excellence and outstanding performances of Argentine Tango.

 

Tangueros from all over the Gulf Islands, Western Canada, and the North West of the U.S.A. gather for these unique weekends of tango dancing.
