Welcome to dance nights

Henna Rakheja, Nov 21, 2012

Evolving from the annals of South America and influenced by European and African culture, the western dance form of Tango has now become so popular in India that the national capital will soon be playing host to the 2nd edition of Annual International Tango Festival.

The festival has evoked interest among young and older professionals, foreign diplomats and other expatriates. Hosted by 2ToTango, the festival last year showcased artistes from Kiev and this year it will include performances and workshops by international artistes from USA, Australia and Europe.

The three day festival will provide an intense tango experience with spectacular performances including 12 workshops by four internationally renowned teachers including Rod Relucio and Jenny from USA and Damian Thomson and Zannica from Australia. There shall be three scintillating milongas (dance nights) and some amazing repertoire of tango music from the traditional to nuevo.

Rakesh Borar, director of 2ToTango says, “65 people have already registered for the workshops which will then lead to four nights of dance. On the opening night at the Gymkhana, 60 people will dance together to Argentinian music and on the second dance night, around 80 people will groove to music in this polished dance form which is actually a social dance.”

Besides all this, the festival will encourage dance lovers to shake a leg and learn some tips from the tango community!

India’s second International Tango festival will be held from November 23 to 25 at the Capitol at The Ashok, from 8pm onwards.
