Tango at The Cooperage


May 15, 2014

HONESDALE, PA — Learn the basic steps of Argentine Tango at The Cooperage on May 18 from 3 to 6 p.m. This workshop will be led by Karen and Mike Lucey of Tango in the Tent, a tango organization based out of Factoryville, PA. For nearly a decade on each summer Sunday afternoon, the Luceys have opened up a tent in their backyard and invited the public to join them to dance tango.

The Luceys begin the afternoon with a brief history of tango, followed by a demonstration of the four basic steps of tango. Next follows a screening of “The Tango Lesson,” a 1997 drama film by British director Sally Potter. Wrapping up the workshop will be a 30-minute tango lesson taught by Vincent and Anna Gallo of Bethany.
