Kaleidoscope is 5 years old!

All these years we were growing up, making small and big steps, we changed the place twice, moving closer and closer to the city center (now we are dancing 15 min far from Kremlin!), we were making new friends, welcomed again and again the old ones… We were doing all our best to become better – for you! – and we’ll keep doing it.

We would like to invite you for our mini-anniversary, to share this holiday with you. It will take place as usual in midsummer, on 19-21 of July 2019.

Dance floor with amazing library design and panoramic windows, mansion planning, high ceilings, wooden floors, cozy bar, large lounge area, super-tasty food... Our small piece of tango-heaven is located in a very Moscow center, at Maroseika street, 1 minute far from Kitay-Gorod metro station.

We are waiting for you at our party because it is impossible without you! Come to HIGH FIVE us. Come for hugs and smiles, long and short talks, new faces, soulful music, sleepless nights and bright emotions!

The chamber format of the event will not allow us to accept everyone, but each year we try to find a proper gender and level balance to make our event a real gift and good memory. Hope we’ll manage to do it again ;)

Registration for Kaleidoscope HIGH FIVE edition will be open on FIFTH of February 2018 at 19:00 (Moscow Time).

Save the date and join!

where do we dance

Art-space, loft at the 3rd floor of historical building (1913) in the very center of Moscow will become a dancing home for 200 crazy tangueros from all over the world. We hope that 48 hours you spend there will be one on the greatest experience in your lives.

“Foto-faktura” is located at Maroseika street, 7/8. It is 15 minutes of walking from the Kremlin!

Venue is located in 1 minute walking distance from metro "Kitay-gorod" (purple and orange line). Follow the music!

We hope our beautiful venue will become a real home for you – warm and cozy, so you’d wish to come back again and again. As some of you already do ;)

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) - http://visa.llcentre.ru/

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 - http://www.kalinkaservice.it/. 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.
