Registration
Bringing La Juan D’Arienzo means paying a portion of their visa costs and international travel, as well as their cache, local travel, lodging, etc. We also rent the biggest venue and bring in the best sound system and sound engineer. The total costs for the night will run over $10,000 and not be covered by the ticket sales. In fact, we rely on donations in order to complete funding for the event. Please keep that in mind, if you feel the price is high.

Pre-registration is now closed, but you are welcome to pay at the door. The price is $70 and includes the whole night (class + milonga). We are not offering a separate registration for just the milonga. Hope you can join us!
