Tango Revolution celebrates Easter by offering a special collaborative Tango class/presentation with Nora Hoffmann and Sonja Riket before the Tango Party.
Nora will present the basic principles of non-violent communication as coined by Marshal Rosenberg.
During the Tango class, Sonja will invite you to apply these principles in the way you dance and give verbal feedback to each other.
Learn to communicate with each other in ways that increase understanding and inspire compassion and joyful giving. More info: and

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

Come watch a movie or enjoy a presentation, then take a beginning Tango class and practice your dance in the relaxing, non-intimidating atmosphere of this intimate community space.
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
