Dust off your dancing shoes and step out to the Stowe Tango Music Festival, where world-renowned musicians convene for a celebration of music, dance, art and culture. This five-day affair kicks off with a tutorial on Argentinian empanadas and continues with an open jam session, concerts and myriad mini-events throughout the village that bring different periods of tango history to life. A dance class taught by Ana Padron and Diego Blanco (pictured) is a highlight. Many events are followed by milongas, or hoofing sessions set to live music, so be prepared to move your feet!
