The first edition of Focus Tango Festival, 10-12 of June 2022, in the Posthoornkerk in the heart of Amsterdam, was an incredible celebration and only possible thanks to the trust and enthusiasm of all the artists, participants, special guests, crew members, volunteers, sponsors and other supporters. Thanks to Stadsherstel the fantastic location Posthoornkerk, with a historic link to tango, was available to us.

I, Fatima, am passionate about tangomusic and tangodance. After surviving a brain hemorage in 2014, tangodance has been wonderful for my recovery. My medical team was thrilled to hear that I (used to) dance tango and told me that tangodance, being a partner- and improvisational dance, is the ultimate therapy for brain injury. I already knew dancing is good for body and soul but since then the health benefits of dancing tango became even more clear to me. With a background in production management in the cultural sector, I decided to start my own foundation and organize a tangofestival like I would want it to be. Stichting Focus Tango aims to increase the popularity of tango. The foundation tries to reach this goal by organizing events, help to conserve and disclose archives of this cultural herritage and co-operate with others.
Stichting Focus Tango is currently working hard on the next production.
Stay informed. Sign up here for our mailinglist. And follow Focus Tango Festival on our social media channels.
Looking forward to meet you (again), greetings, also on behalf of the Focus Tango crew,
Fatima Leeuwenberg
