Dear friends!

Our 4th edition of Kaleidoscope tango-marathon is calling for you! We’ll meet in midsummer, on 20-22nd of July 2018 at the new venue, at the very center, in historical part of the city ;)

What will you find here? No bears with balalaikas, but... dance floor with amazing library design and panoramic windows, cozy and a large lounge area, wooden floors, mansion planning and friendly bar. And this dancing heaven is located in 15 minutes walking distance from Kremlin and 1 minute walking from Kitay-Gorod metro station!

Each year we can see how Kaleidoscope becomes home for marathoners from 4 corners of the earth, from all the compass points. Marathoners, same as us. We are travelling too, we dance all over the world, so we know what makes tangueros feel great: good music, interesting, nice, good dancing people, proper location, and - of course - care, coziness and tasty food. We see our guests coming back and we see more and more new faces willing to be our participants... That tells us we are on the right track ;)

We are waiting for you, - all of you who really wants true hot and intense summer! The chamber format of the event will not allow us to accept everyone, but we will try to find a proper gender and level balance to make this event a real gift and good memory!

Registration will start on 14th of February 2018 at 19:00 (Moscow Time). Save the date and join! Let our 4th be with you!

do you need a visa?

Dear friend!

Since you are IN, you paid the participation and got the final confirmation email, you can think about Russian visa (if you need it).

We will help you to get it.

To apply for visa you need some papers, required by the Embassy, including travel invitation.

The "LLcentre" can make invitation easy and quickly. All you need is to fill the online form using this link (available in English, German, Italian, French) -

On the first page you have a box with promo-code, don’t forget to use it to have a fixed price - 600₽ (RUB)(exchange rate on the day of payment)*. Promo-code is "kaleidoscope" (small letters). After your payment is done, in 1 day or less you will get your official invitation letter by email. The online link is available only for invitation for single entry. If you need invitation for 2 or more entries, please contact "LLcentre" directly.

NB! Please find out if russian embassy in your country needs an original invitation or scan is enough. Delivery of originals has additional price, probably quite high. So if you need original we can try to find an occasion in tango-travelling community to transfer it.

Important! If you did not find your country in the list of LLcenter (f.e. they don't work with Turkey, Palestine, some other counties), you can ask for invitation the Expotel Hotel (it is 3rd in our list of recommended accommodations). It costs 1200 rub and you can request it in your room-reservation email. (See email and details in "accommodation" section).

For dancers from Italy we have one more option, the agency Kalinka - They can help you with the whole process of getting your visa.

P.S. If you have any questions concerning visa, please, contact Mary Smirnova on Facebook.
