Tango Revolution honors International Women's Day (March 8) by showing a documentary film on the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo: a group of courageous mothers who since 1977 continue to demonstrate every Thursday in front of the presidential palace in Buenos Aires, Argentina to demand justice for the disappearance of their children and other 30.000 people during the military coup of 1976-83.

Tango Revolution is a program of Intimate Embrace Tango, which envisions Argentine Tango as a Relational Matrix of connection to ourself, each other and the world. Tango Revolution is a bi-weekly neigborhood educational project to learn and experience the social aspect of Argentine Tango dance, music and history. We organize awareness-and fundraising events around critical issues of our time.

Come watch a movie, take a beginning Tango class or practice your dance in a relaxing, non-intimidating atmosphere. Non-dancers can watch the moves and immerse themselves in the beautiful Tango music. We extend an open invitation to aspiring tango musicians to jam together and practice their skills with the dancers in a receptive and energetic environment.

We hope that Tango Revolution is a fertile ground for learning about Argentine Tango, a social dance and music of immigrants, which continues to cross the boundaries of race, culture, language and social status.Where both beginning and accomplished dancers/musicians can share the floor without obvious hierarchy. Where all gender pairings are encouraged and anyone may ask anyone to dance. Where we can find a Tango Embrace as a common language and antidote against the isolation, separation and fearful existence we are led to believe is necessary.

Come watch, listen or join in the dance! All levels and ages are welcome.

Donations for the artists are accepted.
