March Tango Updates by Gly!
Dear Tango Student,
Spring is approaching and Dance is in the Air!
Lots of exciting March Happenings!
This weekend I am in Tucson participating in the TUCSON TANGO FESTIVAL as a guest instructor and performer!
Hope to see some of you out here in sunny Arizona!
MARCH 15th is the NEXT PRACTICA CON GUSTO!
The first Practica Con Gusto was quite successful and dancers gave me so much positive feedback- THANK YOU!
Looking forward to seeing you out again for the next one...
What is Practica Con Gusto you ask?!...
“Practica Con Gusto”
Friday, March 15th @ *7:30-10PM*
A Unique New Argentine Tango Practica!
Emphasizing mini-lessons and two-song sets, Practica Con Gusto is designed to promote the social aspects of Tango while giving dancers an opportunity to practice, have fun and build confidence.
This practice social is for new and seasoned dancers alike. A safe, fun, and casual environment, dancers are invited to work on their dance, meet new people, and even try out learning the “other role”.
Throughout this unique 2.5 hour-practica, short 10-minute lessons are interspersed with a variety of Tango music, spanning from the Golden Age Classics to Modern Orchestras. These mini-lessons are geared towards giving dancers material to work on while having the opportunity to practice in the moment, without the pressures of being in a Tango Social.
To support more frequent rotation of partners, music is DJ’d in a 2-song format, followed by a “Cortina”, short transitional songs during which time you have an opportunity to find a new partner to work with.
When? FRIDAY, MARCH 15th, 7:30-10PM
Where? The Viscount Dance Studio, 720 SE Sandy Blvd
Entry $10/ $8 Students
~Snacks and light beverages provided.
Come curious, ready to learn, ready to laugh, ready to make mistakes, and support your fellow dancers.
