Mini-lesson in Argentine Tango from Gabriel Monty

Performance by Gabriel & Sigita

Guided Practica with DJ Jessie

The guided practica provides the opportunity for you to try out all the moves you just learned.  No matter the style of dance you love, Argentine Tango will improve your technique in a big way.  We hope that a mix of people brand-new to this beautiful style & members of the existing tango community will join us for this night to help us make tango grow in Vancouver!  It’s rare to be able to dance tango in this wonderful facility with the open air and smooth floor.
Music to move you for practicing your tango at every level!

Thursday July 26th – DANCE IN TRANSIT AT GRANVILLE ISLAND

This amazing new venue is perfect for dancing–join us at Chain & Forge on Granville Island

Zumba warmup with Maira
Mini-lesson in Hip Hop with Jheric Twist Hizon from Booglaoo Academy
Music for dancing from Battling DJs:  DJ Twist & DJ MiXXX

Since this is a new venue and longer hours are possible, we’re trying something different.  DJ MiXXX will play 3 Latin songs–and we’ll count the number of dancers on the floor.  Then DJ Twist will play 3 non-Latin dance songs–and we’ll count the number of dancers on the floor.  We’ll record the numbers and see which dance style wins the battle:  Latin or Non.  Come out and support your dance style tonight!

Dancing!!!

This project is made possible through Granville Island’s Activation Grants and Initiatives
