Tango Buenos Aires in "The Spirit of Argentina"

September 21, 2017 - September 24, 2017

CES at Frostburg State University will host the spectacular dancers and musicians from Tango Buenos Aires in a passionate performance of "The Spirit of Argentina" on Sunday, Sept. 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the Drama Theatre of FSU's Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center. The dancers and musicians of Tango Buenos Aires are celebrated for impeccable technique, dramatic flourish, unbridled passion and authentic interpretations of the Argentine tango. The Washington Post praised their "swirling, fast-paced tapestries of movement, laced with proud postures and sensual couplings." In "The Spirit of Argentina," the company pays tribute to "The King of Tango," Carlos Gardel, a forerunner in the early 20th-century Argentinian tango scene. Featuring a live orchestra, "The Spirit of Argentina" showcases the unbridled passion and emotion that have made tango a cultural phenomenon. On Thursday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m., CES will offer a free tango workshop taught by professional ballroom teacher and performer Jennifer Christophel. The workshop will take place in the Lyric Theatre, 20 E. Main St. in Frostburg. Attendance is limited and prior registration is requested. To register, email [email protected] or call 301-687-3137.
