The Heart of Argentine Tango in Vancouver
Cultural Events and Community Outreach
Monday June 22 – Following guidelines from Provincial Health BC Restart Plan we will begin to offer small group technique classes, private and semi-private classes. Our regular program class series, workshops, practicas and milongas are postponed until further notice. We will continue to follow advice from local government and health authorities. Please check our website or join our mailing list for up to date notifications. If you are interested in taking private/semi-private or technique classes please contact us for more information. All class credits/gift certificates do not expire and will be honoured for current classes or when The Tango Studio is back to regular programming.
SEMI-PRIVATE CLASSES 2 – 4 couples
TECHNIQUE CLASSES 4 – 6 students
When One Door Closes, Another Opens…
Our primary hall location on Prince Edward St. will remain closed until a regular schedule of large group classes and social dancing resumes. Meanwhile we have been busy renovating a beautiful new space for dance and body work. The 600 sq ft studio has a change area, oiled oak wood floors, mirrors, barres, large windows that allow plenty of ventilation and attached bathroom for regular hand washing. Although we miss the amazing energy of our group classes, practicas and milongas we are looking forward to this opportunity to work with students individually and in small groups.
Strength and love to all the people affected by this global health crisis, not only the sick and their caregivers but all the lives and livelihoods disrupted. It is troublesome to watch friends and neighbours afraid to get too close to each other and we hope that this distancing will not become a part of our collective conscious for the long term. The comfort of closeness and touch is vital to our well being and our humanity. Sterile environments as a norm would be much worse for our immunity. Please stay aware as we take in the message that the other is dangerous and that contact and closeness is irresponsible. Amidst all of the isolation we should isolate this moment in time as a necessary measure but return to feel safe to embrace and to be embraced.
Abrazos, Deborah and Santiago
::: Oigo Tu Voz:::
Listen to Demare’s version of this song with the voice of Raúl Berón.
And here is another incredible and moving rendition…
WATCH Orquesta Romantica Milonguera, singer Marisol Martinez
Miedo de morir,
ansia de vivir,
¿sueño o realidad?
Algo quiere ser
en mi soledad…
cantos que olvidé,
sitios que dejé,
dichas que perdí…
hoy en la emoción
de mi corazón
¡todo vuelve a mí!
Oigo tu voz,
la que mi oído no olvida.
Me trae tu voz
hasta mi pena escondida
la luz y la vida
de un rayo de sol.
Vuelvo a escuchar
el nombre mío en tu acento,
si es la palabra que siento
mentira del viento,
delirio, no más.
