Next week I am thrilled to be part of a new experiment bringing tango and nature together at an overnight milonga at the rustic West Point Inn.
To warm up the group, I am giving a workshop called “Beyond the Steps: The Essence of Tango.” There are still spaces to come for the afternoon and evening. Here are the details for the full event.
And here are the details for my workshop:
Beyond the Steps: The Essence of Tango
Saturday, November 19, 3pm at the West Point Inn
This workshop/discussion is appropriate for all levels. I first discovered tango in South America and want to share the essence that I learned in Colombia and Argentina. If you are new to tango, this will be a chance to dive into what makes tango so meditative and healing. And if you are an experienced dancer, this will be a chance to explore and deepen what made you fall in love with the dance–and to experience tango in new ways.
We’ll begin at 3 sharp and go til 4:30.
After my workshop, there will be a beginner’s tango lesson at 6pm and a buffet dinner. The milonga, 9 p.m. to midnight, includes three sets of live acoustic tango music (Ville & Maho), interspersed with old tango music on 78 rpms on the old Victrola (if you have any 78s, bring them). Note: Electric or amplified music is strictly not allowed at the inn.
Please let me know if you will be able to join. . .
