Bailonga Party! DANCING AT 7PM
(by kella)

Tuesday, October 22nd

It's time to celebrate! In October of 2018, Bailonga held a fundraiser collecting donations to put toward's Bailonga's future advertising and growth. We promised that we'd throw you a party to celebrate if you met our goals and you went above and beyond: our goal was to raise $850 and we raised over $1000!

So it's time for us to say THANK YOU with this very special event at Bailonga on October 22nd. But what does a party at Bailonga look like? Here's what we have planned for you: 

  • A full evening of traditional tango music with DJ's Wella, Lia, and Kella
  • An extra special spread of food and drink
  • A 3 HOUR dance, dancing starts at 7pm!
  • A dance performance by Bailonga's dance instructors
  • Tango games to get in touch with our silly side!

Also, this event is FOR YOU, it is not about making money for Bailonga, so for tonight only, entry will be optional donation only! That means, if you want to pay and support Bailonga, awesome! If you want to get a free night of dancing, food and fun, also awesome! Having a good time is the priority for the evening and we'll do everything we can to make that happen.

TangoTools Seminars: Ready for extra flavors?
(by marisela)

ADDING FLAVOR TO YOUR TANGO

TangoTools Seminars & PRACTICA
Twice a month on the first and second Fridays of the month. An opportunity to push your current level and a chance to practice what you have.
 
 
Details:
 Tangotools 7-8pm with or without partner.
The practica: 8-9pm  open to anyone. 
 
 
TangoTool $15.000 attend free the practica if you have attended the class.
Practica alone: $5.00.

 541-485-6647 or email 

Mrizik@aol.com

www.mariselarizik.com
 
 Explanation:

Twice a month on a Friday, I will share my take on the many tools  for dancing and understanding tango that I have acquired through more than 17 years of researching, dancing and teaching tango.
 
Each year, in my trip to Buenos Aires I make  a list of accomplished tango dancer whom teaching approach I want to check.
 
While many of the tango concepts are the same, the tools and techniques that each accomplished dancer  use  to explain their brand of tango, in most cases, seem diametrically opposed to the equally skillful tango dancer next door.  No wonder why there is tango war in many communities, but then that happens in any religion, politics and other human field. 
 
My idea for these seminars is not to change your mind about your tango or whatever style you most favor, but to open up to new additions that may enrich what you already possess. 
 
I will work with concepts and exercises that I own because they make sense to me and I have integrated them  in my dance or have tested their efficacy dancing with many partners.  
 
Come and give it a try, it may add that little extra for you and your partner enjoyment.
 
At 420 West 12th.
 
Here a taste of the concepts that we will be exploring: 
  • How to get more vocabulary into your dancing the painless way: Foot chasing and creative geometric.
  • How  to get the ahhhh feelings from the guy and the girl. The embracing lab.
  • I want to dance too- The follower inner confession and the guy's puzzle look: What do you mean?
  • Find the music in unusual places! ticky, ticky
  • And more, more... guarantee to have a fun and fulfilling experience. The concepts above are in not particular order.
