VidaMia is organized by Susanne and Alan Twigg.
We are passionate close-embrace tango dancers and travel frequently to other Encuentros in Europe and the United States. Our home is in Costa Silencio in the south of Tenerife, where we have been living since 2012.
Over the years we have organized a large number of local milongas in the north and south of the island. In addition, we have also been responsible for running tango holidays to Tenerife.
Alan is also part of the team behind the annual La Mirada New Year tango meeting, which takes place in the Golf del Sur region of Tenerife.
We both wanted to host an international close-embrace Encuentro in Tenerife.
It’s taken a couple of years for us to find the perfect location. We had been searching for a hotel that could accommodate lots of dancers and which had a nice dance floor. The Maritim Hotel in Puerto de la Cruz ticks almost every box. The only exception is the dance floor, which we put down ourselves.
More than anything we love international events. It’s because of the energy. Something special happens when people from different cultures, different countries and speaking different languages come together.
This is what we want to achieve for VidaMia. We want experienced dancers to be excited about the prospect of coming to Tenerife in the depth of the winter to experience something truly memorable.
In addition, we want great music, 100% gender balance and a nicely flowing dance floor.
The first VidaMia took place in January 2020 and was a huge success. Of course, we are going to improve and build on our success.
Above all, we want you to know that you can put your faith in us to deliver.
We hope to greet you soon in Tenerife….
