TANGO STARS TEACH IN SANTA BARBARA
/bigger>Five days of intensive instruction by Nito & Elba García,
renowned maestros of Argentine Tango
California. -- November 1, 2000 -- Tango Santa Barbara is proud to announce
their Fall 2000 Tango Intensive, featuring world-famous teachers/performers Nito
& Elba García. Participants will spend five days (November 15-19) Immersed
in the intricacies of Argentine Tango, considered by many to be the world's most
sensual dance. Classes will be held at the Carrillo Recreation Center, 100 E.
Nito García learned Tango the old-fashioned way, watching
his uncle and aunt dance on a packed-earth patio in the province of Buenos Aires
more than half a century ago. As a young man he polished his skills in the dance
halls of Buenos Aires in the '50s, was principal dancer with the orchestra of
Osvaldo Pugliese, and later moved to Mar Del Plata, on the Atlantic coast of
Argentina, where he continued to perform and teach.
Supremely creative and
elegant exponents of the Tango, Nito & Elba have, in recent years, been
"rediscovered" by a younger generation of tangueros in Buenos Aires, many
of whom seeek them out for individual instruction. Nito & Elba teach
regularly in South America and tour North America and Europe frequently for
workshops and seminars. They were featured instructors at Stanford University's
Tango Weeks, as well as the recent International Tango Congresses, held in
Buenos Aires in 1999 & 2000.
