Rossana “La Ros” Capasso
Coming from the western most county of mainland Europe, our Portuguese master of music is sure to keep everybody on the dancefloor until the last Tanda (and beyond) with his solid, energizing selection and a Southern touch.
This fun-loving bundle of energy will have you saying “mamma mia”! after her Tandas for sure. Her unique sparkle shines all the way through the wonderful, well-balanced choices on her playlist.
As a full-blooded Tanguera, this music-loving lady knows what dancers want, and is sure to capture your heart, feet and soul as a DJ and person, coming to TANGOAMADEUS all the way from sunny San Diego, California.
Rumors have it that he turns into a party animal Sunday nights at Amadeus. Alongside smoking Tango tracks to keep your feet burning all night long, be aware that upon transformation, he might even get you to show off other dance skills you never knew you had!
This “gentle giant” is a well-known face on and off the dancefloor. Our wonderful DJ from Moscow will enchant you with his special selection and sensitive arrangements of Tandas - leaving you to float all the way home.
from Brussels, Belgium will be ready to capture all of your beautiful smiles, encounters and abrazos with their professional memory-making machines! We are excited to welcome them on board in 2016!
ALBERT SCHWEITZER HAUS
(Afternoon Tango Cafe and Wednesday Milonga)
This Tango venue jewel is located behind the façade of an old church, boasting a wonderful wooden floor, a long bar, and the special “lounge” atmosphere with comfortable seating areas. Convenient accesses around three sides of the dancefloor seem to be made for Cabeceo, and complete an all-round enjoyable Tango experience.
This will also be our afternoon Tango Café location for this year, providing beautiful daylight Milongas due to the floor-to-ceiling windows. Enjoy a good cup of coffee and Viennese sweets while you meet and greet, recharge your dance energy and enjoy the music of our TANGOAMADEUS DJs!
The spacious rooms of one of Vienna´s biggest dance schools offer everything you need for your Tango workshops: daylight flooded rooms, wooden floor, mirrored walls on the one side and huge windows on the other, air conditioning for just the right temperature.... and the bar and café area inviting you to relax before, between, and after the workshops.
TU Kuppelsaal(Thursday Milonga)
The TU Kuppelsaal is our special location. The amazing 200-year-old wooden roof construction gives this location a warm and very unique atmosphere. The venue is still something of an insiders' tip in Vienna and usually not part of the touristic tours of Vienna.
"C3" (Sunday Milonga)
This modern location with stunning architecture, professional sound system, air-conditioning and of course a perfectly smooth wooden dance floor is the perfect place to spend the last night of the Festival with old and new friends. The C3 is conveniently located one minute from the subway station, 5 stations from the city centre.

And don´t worry – spontaneous whistles of approval, loud clapping and stomping after their great classes (fact!!) is normal. You´ll see.
need we say more? This wonderful world famous Tango Salon couple brings elegance, precision and lightnessto the dancefloor – paired with smiles that light up every room. Get your scoop of their experience in their classes - it´s worth it!
watching music in motion: this is what you will feel when you see these two dance. Always pushing the borders for new interpretations, combining Tango traditions and long-standing experience with an own technique, transforming every performance into authentic moments of magic…And yes, ladies, Dana will be giving ladies

The ballroom of the Palais Ferstel is one of the most extravagant halls in town. The elegant wooden floor is an invitation to dance in itself – but beware when trying the cabeceo as the eye might be distracted by the exquisite panelled ceiling or the magnificent lustres high up above!
