Queer Tango

Sat 10 Apr 2010, 4.30-6.30 pm, Walkley Community Centre, 7a Fir St. S6 3TG

Queer Tango welcomes everyone. It's a space to get together, enjoy tango music, to socialize, to exchange and learn. A continuous search for new ways of communication through movement and dance. Queer Tango breaks with regimented tradition and bends the rules that have, for decades, applied to traditional tango. In Queer Tango sexual orientation is not an assumption, and gender does not restrict you to a role. Queer tango is in favour of exploring and we embrace diversity. Queer tango does not discriminate against others or oneself. We respect codes, style, roles, type of dress and shoes, how the dancing couples are conformed, sexuality, religion, ethnic background, age, gender, nationality, social class... Queer Tango nurtures and grows from exploring the possibilities that - in fact - we get from all being different.The teacher, Cecilia, has come all the way from Argentina, where she trained in traditional and queer tango. She focuses her teaching in the communication between the dancers, the pleasure of dancing and improvisation... which are the basis of Argentine Tango. Alternate Saturdays at Heeley Institute or Walkley Community Centre. Beginners always welcome! Participation fee: £10/£8 conc.Click for contact email
