Dear PHANTASTango dreamers,
We are happy that so many of you were in the Zoom meeting today! That was a wonderful and moving moment!
As promised we now want to announce our decision about the 2020 camp.
We are happy and grateful that we did not experience such a dramatic pandemic crisis as in some other countries. We look forward to the upcoming easing of the limitations and hope we can continue on this path. Unfortunately, these liberalizations will probably not allow our camp taking place at the end of July.
Even if events, accommodation and catering will be allowed step by step in next weeks, the social distance rules will apply for much longer. We certainly cannot keep these when we dance Tango – in the way we know and love it. Additionally, because of the still valid travel restrictions, it is very uncertain whether foreign artists and participants could come or not.
For this year’s camp we have to and want to make our decision now – since in our organisation plan things like the preparation meeting, all orders, programme planning and much more would be on the agenda now. And, you might also want to know how to plan your summer.
Irrespective of the administrative rules, we want to decide responsibly since we are – as a little paradise island amidst everyday turbulences – still part of this society.
Therefore, we decide with a heavy heart, but probably not completely unexpected for most of you:
We cancel the 2020 PHANTASTango! Summercamp.
Wit a Mixture of Happiness and Sadness
We Say Thank You!
As sad as this decision is for us – as lovely and heart-warming were your overwhelming support and solidarity which you also showed with donations!
We say thank you for all that and promise – we will do everything possible to keep the PHANTASTango! Idea alive!
Let’s stay in contact!
Camp Highlights online!
The days between July 17 – 26 2020 will be very very strange for us…
To ease that feeling a bit, we invite you to meet us on the three ball nights – live and online, of course! We plan a little program together with our artists in order to get easier over the long time until the next camp!
PHANTASTango! Calendar 2020
One year without camp is bad – but this must not be a year without PHANTASTango! Calendar! So, we again want to edit a calendar that shows how you are, what you do instead, what you miss, what you look forward to!
Feel free to send us your picture – painted, photographed by yourself – but not stolen. Then, you will have a PHANTASTango! calendar in your post box right at Christmas bringing some light into this Tango-free year.
We know that many of you got into financial trouble themselves – and some still donated! Sometimes even without registration – we thank you all from the bottom of our heart!
If you still want to support us with a donation, you can find a simple donation receipt with bank details on www.phantastango.de.
Usage of Your Donations
We will use your donations to support the Pfaennerhall, our artists, our team and the management, too.
Also, we planted five apple trees on the Pfaennerhall ground last week as a little contribution to climate protection. They wait for us and will hopefully grow splendid over the year.
16 – 25 July 2021
15th International PHANTASTango! Summercamp
The date for next year’s camp is fix (actually, already for a long time since the camp always takes place in the last complete week in July). We hope that live will be back to normal by then and PHANTASTango! can take place.
All artists are, of course, re-invited for our next edition!
As promised and as a thank-you for your support and your loyalty, we open our registration to all donators already 2 weeks before the official registration start – so your camp place should be safe.
You guys, stay healthy, keep the Tango in your hearts – see you hopefully soon!
All the best to all of you, Mirjam & Andreas
