Teaching Tango

No Nest… possibly returning to the North in a couple of weeks?

We are sorry that the weekend at the Nest in Jerome was canceled due to more snow. 

We are looking at some weekends coming up to head to possibly Sedona to revisit the material we were going to teach.

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe 2010 is just about over.  It has been a fantastic year for me. I’ve met some fantastic people and have taught some amazing people tango this year.  My students give me a tremendous amount of joy  – thank you!

I look forward to 2011 in so many ways and so should you!

1) 3 TANGO TOURS TO CHOOSE FROM!
We will be offering 3 tours this coming year for tango lovers.  The Mendoza – Vino y Tango tour: 5 days in Mendoza Argentina exploring wine country.  The 10-day Cultural Immersion Tour – 10 days in Buenos Aires and the 8-day Tango Tour de Lujo. Each with a different pocketbook and objective in mind.

2) BORGIALLI TANGO SHOES ON THE ROAD!
Rommel Oramas and I will be taking the Soy Porteno practice sneakers on the road this year.  We will be visiting several festivals across the country and we are looking forward to bringing some comfort to your feet!  We will also be unveiling the Borgialli Tango Shoe website with shopping and logo.  VERY EXCITING!

3) MORE CLASSES!
Besides my classes at Scottsdale Community College and ASU this semester, I will be teaching my FUNDAMENTALS CLASSES in January.  ALSO, Fridays January 21, 28 and February 4th Rommel Oramas and I will be teaching ADVANCED CONNECTIONS WORKSHOPS at the Art of Dance in Scottsdale.
I will also be teaching in Jerome, Arizona in February!

4) ASU TANGO FESTIVAL APRIL 1, 2, 3
I am really excited for this festival. Not just because it is on my home turf! or is being hosted by my students or because I will be teaching at it! but MOST IMPORTANTLY the selection of teachers are some of the best teachers in the US (Canada)!  This will truly be a learning and sharing weekend.  Please join us…  Housing hosts and group rates available. 

Happy NEW YEAR!  May all you wish be fulfilled!

Free Event was Great!

Thursday and Friday October 13, 14, 21, 22 I hosted a Free Tango event at ASU Night Gallery in Tempe Marketplace. 

Free Tango 1

We had a lot of people come for the free classes, (60+)  many stayed for dancing and we had lovely performances. 

More than 300 people each night were exposed to Tango! 

Free Tango 2

I am really grateful to my ASU students who came out to help in many ways:  dancing, handing out fliers, telling people about tango, performing, and taking the classes.

This was a great opportunity to share community, share time with nice people, make new friends through dance. 

Dance and Tango is so many things to different people and some have never danced before.  Dance creates connection to self, to others, to music.  It is great exercise.  It works the body and the brain. 

Tango is fabulous medicine!

The dancers who experienced performing, some for the first time were Acacia and Ryan, Ben and Katie, and Marisa and Derek.  This was so great to see their dancing, to hear about their experience, their nerves, their expectations met or unmet.  Many parents came to see their children for the first time dancing.  How great to see that kind of support. 

Some of The local Tango Community came out to dance or to see what it was about. 

I am happy with the event.  I enjoyed taking tango to a gallery space and to a mall.
