Teaching Tango

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.

Saturday is going to be fun!!!

PRACTICA del Desierto SATURDAY October 9th

Rommel Oramas and I will be hosting a practica instead of a milonga on the 2nd Saturday of the month.  The 2nd Saturday Practica will be an Orchestral Immersion – with this Saturday’s focus: Carlos Di Sarli. (my favorite!)

The evening begins at 8pm with a Specialty Class for all levels with Rommel Oramas.
Followed by practice practice and more practice from 9:00 – 12:00 (ish!). Rommel and I will be on hand to answer any questions and for dancing 🙂

The 1st 2 hours will be completely focused on Carlos Di Sarli’s music in as much chronology as I can piece together! I will insert tidbits of information regarding di Sarli and his orchestra to contextualize his beautiful music without taking away from dancing time.

The goal will be to have a Guest Tango Music Maven every month to present their favorite songs by the chosen orchestra and why!
We have many talented people in the area who DJ and who have great insight into our lovely Tango Music. We will post our Orchestras for the year on Saturday.
