FRIDAY, MAY 24th- MONDAY, MAY 27th | UPSTAIRS
The Philadelphia Argentine Tango School presents the 3rd Annual Philadelphia International Tango Festival from Friday, May 24 through Monday, May 27, 2013. The festival features an absolutely fantastic line-up of instructors/performers:
** Javier Antar & Kara Wenham (Buenos Aires)
** Guillermo Cerneaz & Marina Kenny (Buenos Aires)
** Adam Hoopengarnder & Ciko Tanik (New York City)
We’ve also put together an amazing roster of DJs:
** Evan Griffiths (New York City)
** Lung-Kuei Lin (New York City/Taipei)
** Adam Hoopengardner (New York City)
** Marc Hussner (Philadelphia)
** Eva Von Esse (Philadelphia)
Our festival offers something for tango dancers (and aspiring tango dancers) at all levels. Adam & Ciko will teach a special four-day Absolute Beginner Track, which will make it possible for those with no prior experience with tango to participate in the festival. At the other extreme, there will be three limited-attendance Partners-Only Advanced workshops (2 taught by Javier & Kara and 1 taught by Guillermo & Marina) to challenge the most experienced dancers. In between are a host of Intermediate and Intermediate/Advanced workshops covering the gamut of interesting tango topics.
The festival features nightly milongas Friday night through Monday nights at the extremely gorgeous Ruba Club. We will also offer a special late night milonga on Saturday night in the regular studio of the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School.
To work out the kinks from the previous night’s dancing and get you ready for more, we will offer daily yoga classes with Monica Moya, a spectacular yoga teacher who runs her own studio in Buenos Aires. As she did last year, Monica will travel from Buenos Aires for the festival.
You will find much more information on this year’s festival by using the links at the left. We very much hope you will join us for the 3rd Annual Philadelphia International Tango Festival. It’s sure to be a wonderful time, and will be even better if you are there!
