Martha and Manolo - Schedule of Activities for August 2009

CLASES DE TANGO CANYENGUE EN EL MARCO DEL MUNDIAL DE TANGO/09,
EN EL MARCO DEL FESTIVAL MUNDIAL ESTAREMOS COMO TODOS LOS AÑOS EN EL HOSPITAL BORDA.
Canyengue Classes during the Mundial de Tango 2009 events, and we will also be teaching/performing during this time at the Hospital Borda [I think this is the charity event at a psychiatric hospital that Martha and Manolo have participated in for the last few years. Martha and Manolo are very proud of being able to participate in this event - they and other well known Tango teachers (I think they also mentioned Graciela Gonzalez and others) spend time performing for and teaching tango to patients at the hospital with psychological and emotion problems. It is a very emotional and therapeutic experience for the students because they have an opportunity to learn to connect with other human beings through tango.]

NOS PRESENTAMOS CON EL GRUPO LA NOCHE DE LOS MILONGUEROS
"LOS FEDERALES"
Thursday August 20 we will be at Salon Canning performing with the group of special guests Los Milongueros "Los Federales"

And here's a video recently posted on Youtube of Martha and Manolo, Roxina and Adrian and alumni of Camicando 2009, dancing Canyengue at the festival's closing night milonga at La Baldosa. You might catch glimpses of us too:


Camicando 2009 Milonga at La Baldosa

Funny thing is that whenever we are filmed dancing Canyengue we create a cosmic disturbance that makes everyone within a 20 metre radius dance a random 3 - 5 beats behind the music! Just kidding - please note the music is out of sync with the video.

Not ever having been in Toronto and only having discovered this blog yesterday, therefore have never met you, could I make a wild guess and say that you are the only Asian couple on the floor? He in an orange (sorry I am not good with colours) jacket and she in a red skirt?

Dear Alan,

You are right! It is another instance where we are again sticking out like sore thumbs. We heartily apologize for the trauma that your discovery may have caused you.

Having said that, you may wish to avoid as much as possible reading this:

Thanks for your comment!
