As part of the celebrations marking the Golden Age Tango Orchestra leader and virtuoso bandoneonist Aníbal Troilo’s centenary, MonTango invites you to a special workshop: Tango Music and Movement: Listening and Dancing to Troilo

Location:

Workshop Information:

This workshop will teach you how to listen to and recognize the distinctive musical style of Aníbal Troilo’s tango orchestra. The evolution of his style, which spans the years 1938 to 1975, offers a fascinating look at the gradual style changes in tango music and the development of the Orquesta Típica. Following the listening portion of the workshop, we will introduce carefully designed exercises in movement quality to help dancers feel and express Troilo’s special brand of phrasing and lyricism. Prerequisite: Tango 4 or equivalent (a year or more of regular classes and practice). No prior technical musical knowledge is necessary; no partner needed.

Mary Oleskiewicz is an internationally recognized musicologist, master teacher of music, and authority on European and Latin American music. She is also a prizewinning flutist and a player of the bandoneon. Mary began dancing Argentine Tango in 2005 and specializes in teaching Tango musicality.

Note that this workshop replaces the guided practice. From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., right before the Café-Croissant-Tango.

$20 members, $25 non-members, milonga included.
