Mikkel and Thea are working hard to encourage arts and culture in a small community in Norway called Vestby. They knew the slogan of Tango offen und bunt: "everybody can dance". They offered us a challenge: to teach tango to a group of elderly people who had never danced tango, to organize a milonga outdoors so that they could dance, and inviting all the inhabitants of Vestby to join the party. We made the tango workshops. The regional government contacted a tango orchestra. As it can be seen in the photos, the goal was achieved and everyone danced. People from other villages joined the milonga and the party was total. Tango connects, regardless of age, overcome the limits.
