For the past eight years, Laura and I worked with the Wixman’s to promote Tango in the Columbia River Gorge. Since her passing, a fund was set up in Laura’s honor to support Tango lessons in the Gorge, the Live Like Laura Green Dance Fund. I am pleased to announce that there will be a series of progressive Tango classes supported by that fund starting Monday, March 4th. These classes will be ongoing depending on dancer participation and will be held at the White Salmon Grange at 1085 Main Street, White Salmon, WA 98672. No partner necessary but bring your friends.
The instructor will be Glykeria Manis, an active member of Portland’s Tango dance scene. She has a significant Tango background and regularly hosts dance trips to Greece. Laura and I took a series of classes from Gly and appreciated her inclusive gentle character and unassuming style. She would be Laura’s first choice as an instructor.
The cost of the class will be $15 for a single lesson and $20 for two and will follow this schedule:
- 7:00 to 8:15 Beginning Lesson
- 8:15 to 9:30 Beginermediate Lesson
You are invited to participate! Welcome to the rich world of the Tango Embrace. Let the Trance begin…
