Chris Leonard,

Arts for the Aging: The Poetry of Tango

Event Description

Monday, August 10, 11-11:50 a.m.  

Join Arts for the Aging teaching artist Peter Burroughs and pianist Carlos Cesar Rodriguez with RÓMEZ3arts for a discussion about tango with Alexandra Russell from Tango Mercurio in The Poetry of Tango. This virtual participatory program encourages older adults and caregivers to explore the history of Argentinian tango from its scandalous origins in the slums of Buenos Aires to songs of longing and nostalgia. Participants will listen to Peter Burroughs sing selections of tango music – then discuss the lyrics as recited and translated into English by Alexandra Russell. View a demonstration of tango steps and movements and move with the music!

This class is for residents of Fairfax County and the Cities of Fairfax and Falls Church only.
