What an exciting opportunity we have! Come join us for Pichuco, the movie and Milonga night!
I have been contacted by a close friend of the director to offer to show this documentary on the tango orchestra leader, Anibal Troilo, nicknamed, Pichuco. He heard the magical instrument of tango, the bandoneon, when he was little and got his first one when he was 10 years old. Come learn more about this influential musician, the music and the orchestra. THEN stay for a milonga!
Movie starts promptly @ 7:35pm Milonga to follow.
Please arrive by 7pm to find your spot.
Bring a chair or a pillow, there will be some chairs available.
First come first served.
$15 covers the cost of the movie & milonga.
$10 goes directly to the Director
A professor at the Escuela de Música Popular de Avellaneda (School of Popular Music of Avellaneda) is in the process of digitizing close to 500 original manuscripts with the help of his students. Arrangements from the Aníbal ¨Pichuco¨ Troilo Orchestra that have been preserved until now. Through interviews with musicians from several generations and styles, who play live the most memorable songs from the master, this documentary takes a musical journey through the works of one of the main characters in the history of Tango and of the Argentine music. 80 minutes (Spanish with subtitles)

As you probably are aware, Maximiliano Cristiani and Jesica Arfenoni are back in town for workshops, private lessons and performances. We have created a schedule of classes that is progressive in nature starting with a Leader and Followers Technique class on Friday night. No partner necessary just a desire to work on yourself.
Friday 8:00pm – 9:30pm Followed by an informal practica: a chance to just dance and to ask Maxi and Jesica questions.
Why take a technique class? Let alone focused only on myself for a couples dance?
I think this is a good question.
Technique is a fundamental basic part of your dance. Like a building, if this isn’t well established you will not be as sturdy. How many times have you asked about how to improve your balance or about how to do a more elegant embellishment? Or how about those enrosques that you have been wanting to try? All of these and more are possible when you understand your own body and have a technique to build upon.
I have found that taking technique classes helps me to find my own axis and to be clear about it on my own. It allows me the time and space to make connections to things in my dance that get blurred when working within the couple: like the relationship of my arms to my pelvis, for example. What? They are related??? See!
If you need more information contact Rommel 928-301-5215. I can only encourage you to support the improvement of your dance and take advantage of these 2 great teachers.
And lastly – $50 for the Friday class and practica and we will include the Saturday milonga. It all happens at Bond Hall at SNAP 4425 N. Granite Reef Rd. Scottsdale, AZ.
As promised here are my ideas for Tuesdays upcoming classes. Class begins at 7:00pm – 8:30pm at SNAP 4425 N. Granite Reef Scottsdale, AZ.
The topics are subject to change depending on who attends the class. The class is designed for the Intermediate dancer. As always class is $15.
