About us

The idea & the people behind it

The capital Bern has an active, diverse and inviting tango scene, which is attracting more and more foreign tangueras and tangueros. For this reason, 9 established milonga organizers or tango schools have come together and put together a long tango weekend. From 2nd to 5th May 2024, the first edition of our "Milonga Tour de Berne" invites all curious dancers from near and far to explore the (tango) capital by dancing. 9 milongas with 9 nationally and internationally known DJs in 8 different locations are waiting for you to discover and dance to - have fun!

Eric & Jeusa

The story of Eric & Jeusa begins in 1987 in Rio de Janeiro, where Eric met Jeusa after a year-long stay in Buenos Aires.

The following years were marked by her pioneering work in spreading Argentine tango in Brazil and traveling as a guest teacher through many European countries.

As show dancers, they accompanied tours of orchestras such as Jorge Dragone, La Strapata, Trio Gomina and Silencio Orquesta and appeared in various TV shows.

They have had a foothold in the PROGR in Bern since 2004 and have been largely responsible for building the local tango scene ever since.

With their many years of experience as course leaders and as organizers of the nationally popular Milonga, they have been enriching tango in Bern for years.

Tangolounge is a monthly, traditional Milonga in the heart of Bern (since 2013) - every 3rd Saturday of the month at Neuengasse 24.

Experienced DJs play music mainly from the Epoca de Oro, the time of the great tango orchestras in Buenos Aires. Our passions are quality of the sound and a careful selection of the music. 160 m2 wooden dance floor and a staffed bar with lounge in a stylish ambience. Extravagant terrace for recreational moments. Everyone is warmly welcome.

The Tangolounge team is part of the organization of Milonga Tour de Berne and supports the preparation and implementation both materially and ideally. From 2025 on we will be there with our own Milonga. For the 2024 edition, we look forward to dancing with you in the various offered Milongas. Albi & Birte. Tangolounge@Facebook

Camille Marie Yannantuono & Valentino Sorpresi

Camille comes from San Diego, California, Valentino is Italo-Berner. Tango has brought our life and dance paths together. Since 2013 we have been running the Sorpresi Tango tango school in Bern's old town in our tango home base LA PERLA - El Salón. The intimate connection within the couple, the mindful communication between the dance partners, as well as the enjoyable interpretation of the music are the focus of our lessons. It is also important to us to regularly invite selected maestras/maestros to LA PERLA as guest teachers in order to offer motivated dancers a variety of training and to be inspired by the best in their field.

Sorpresi Tango offers 6 different milongas throughout the year in 6 different locations in Bern, which appeal to different dancers. At the Milonga Tour de Berne we host the After Hours Tango Club. Together with DJ Iskra Strateva we will take the tango into a club atmosphere late at night - let yourself be surprised!
