Journals - Tango Dance
Stanley

CITVC students got a tango dance lesson and a cultural lesson! We worked with The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts on this videoconference. April and Noah gave the students examples of the rondo floor movement and the basic beginning steps of the tango. Students also heard various forms of tango music and received a lesson in the political nature of the music and the political history of Argentina.

Students were encouraged to join their local Tango Society and tango on!

April, our dance instructor, gave us the names of two Tango dancers who are the premier couple in the Tango world now. Their names are Adrian Veredice and Alejandra Hobert.
Below is one of their videos:

"I have a newly found appreciation for Tango, and all types of dances out there. Maybe one day I will be on Dancing With the Stars ...But, all jokes aside, this videoconference was, without a doubt, one of the greatest experiences of my entire high school career, and it is a day that I will never forget."  -Stan
