Last Tango in Bali

A serious commitment to the promotion and development of Tango dancing in Bali has been made with the inauguration of the Tango Bali Club on Sunday, June 5, 2005, at the Sunset Restaurant and Latino Club in Seminyak.

Aspiring to become the centre of the Tango movement in Southeast Asia, the Club provides regular training and education via Tango dancing classes, Tango music performances, Tango shows, workshops with ranking Tango dancers and instructors, and organized tours to the cultural heart of Tango, Buenos Aires.

The History of Tango

The seductive movements of Tango and Milonga trace their roots to the lower-class neighborhoods of Buenos Aires in the 1880s where people would gather to socialize in bars, cafes, gambling houses and quilombos. Born in an age when body contact between dancers was still deemed highly scandalous, the exotic nuances of the Tango slowly took root, eventually traveling to the capitals of Europe where wealthy Argentineans on holiday mesmerized the Continent's gentile society otherwise preoccupied with the 1-2-3, 1-2-3ing of waltzing to the music of Johann Strauss. It has been suggested that Tango dancing left Argentina in working class clothing and returned in a tuxedo, as Tango music and Tango dancing became the rage in Europe dating from the roaring 20s.

Joining The Tango Club

The Tango Club Bali offers memberships at Rp. 200,000 (approximately US$20.40) per year per person which includes:

• 10% discounts on regularly scheduled lessons.

• 10% discount on all Tango events at the The Sunset Restaurant located on Jalan Saridewi No. 17 in Seminyak.

• Priority placement for workshops and private Tango lesson.

• A subscription to the Clubs newsletter.

• SMS alerts for Tango events taking place in Bali.

June 2005 Events

Following the grand launching on June 5, 2005, the Tango Club Bali have scheduled a Milonga Dance Party on Friday, June 17, 2005 and a Tango Tour Closing Party on Saturday, June 25, 2005 - both to be held at The Sunset Restaurant. Admission tickets are Rp. 75,000 (approximately US$7.65) for advance purchase and Rp. 85,000 (approximately US$8.65) at the door on the evening of each event.

A number of workshops and dance events are schedule by the Club, including an August visit by the renowned Tango dancers - Fernanda Ghi and Guillermo Merlo from Argentina, to conduct workshops and performances for the very first time in Indonesia.

Additional information and reservations can be made by calling ++62-(0)81238 39423.
