Global Queer Tango Connections

Argentine Tango is about many things, including extreme gender. It’s a fantasy of femininity and masculinity. In this workshop, we’ll look at how Tango can help us feel more confident in our everyday masculinity and femininity, how we walk down the street, how we stand, and how we use our bodies to give and receive power in close proximity to another person.

Absolutely no dance experience or desire to dance is needed for this workshop.
