What's Sakura Tango Festival?

The SAKURA TANGO FESTIVAL, to be held for three days in cherry blossom season, will be a great opportunity for people all over the world who love tango and who are interested in tango to enjoy this international exchange.

Argentine tango was born over 100 years ago, and it came to be known outside of the country. Mostly people appreciated the beauty of tango by listening to the music and watching the dance performances at the theatre as a form of art until about 50 years ago.
However, the tango scene has since developed greatly during the past 20 years, and now people around the world enjoy tango as a way to communicate as well.
Tango has grown from “art in the theatre” to “a communication tool in dancing circles.”
Since the tango was registered on the UNESCO World Intangible Cultural Heritage List in 2009, it has become even more popular. Tango festivals are now held all over the world, including Taiwan, Indonesia, China, Russia, Korea, the United States, Canada and Finland. In spite of the differences in culture and custom, tango fans from the all corners of the world visit these places and enjoy communicating through their common language of dance. Tango has been connecting people beyond the differences of race, nationality, culture and generation.

Since our establishment in 1997, we have been a pioneer in introducing tango as a non-verbal communication tool in Japan. Although many people are fond of dancing tango now, in Fukuoka, the gateway of Asia, it was the first time such a great festival has ever been held, that a great many tango fans got together from all over the world. 

We are looking forward welcoming you in Fukuoka.
