What the what?
Tango is a partner dance that began as a popular music style in the region of Argentina and Uruguay. In 2009 it was added to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists. In normal times you can find people dancing it all over the world, every night of the week.
Here in Cleveland we are preparing to rebuild our dance community with a priority on Healthy Bodies, Creative Minds, and Great Hugs. If you’re interested in learning a bit about how to move and communicate in this world then sign up for our newsletter and join us for our next event:
Humans are meant to move! Dance has been an integral part of almost every culture for hundreds of years, and only recently have we seen such a stark tendency toward sedentary life. There are numerous studies now that point to partner dance (and sometimes tango in particular) as a way of staying healthy both physically and mentally.
—? Maybe you’re interested in finding a new community of people who are curious, passionate, and dedicated to a practice.
—? Maybe you’ve always been terrified of busting a move, but someone suggested tango as a good entry point.
—? Maybe you have an idea of roses in the teeth and fishnet stockings (spoiler alert: that’s not what it’s really like).
In any case, we invite you to come learn a bit about this fascinating art form and what a community of dance can offer!
