Dear Tango Friends,
Tango Revolution has grown a lot over the last weeks. During National Dance Week over 70 people visited each event.
Great performances and presentations were offered and we heard wonderful feedback from people. What touched me the most was to see so many happy faces and feel such good energy! We thank everyone for their presence and participation.
For Mother's Day we have another beautiful event planned. Bring your mom, grandma and especially any woman you know who is planning to become a mother.
This Sunday's event is a benefit for Christina Ladas, a Tango teacher/dancer in our Bay Area community who was taken to the hospital with an acute kidney disease. All proceeds of the event will go towards her healthcare fund. Please, if you can, be generous with your donations at the door.
To continue to keep things going smoothly, we need more volunteer help. Please let me know if you can help out tomorrow and/or during future events.
We can use your help for:
*taking the donations at the door
*helping out behind the bar
*someone with good ears who can listen to the doorbell and press the buzzer during the evening.
*set-up before the event and organization after the event
Of course there can be a rotatation so that everyone has a chance to dance and enjoy the event.

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.
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.
