ROBERT LEYS: DVD ON TANGO, WITH FOLLOWING COMMENTARY

TUESDAY, JULY 31, 7:15 P.M. IN THE LIBRARY

 ROBERT LEYS:  DVD ON TANGO, WITH FOLLOWING COMMENTARY

On Tuesday Robert Leys will present a program entitled “Tango: The Essence of the Dance.”  We'll see a half-hour DVD filmed in Marin County by Bay Area tango dancers.  They and Robert will both provide commentary to give a fine introduction to tango, with insights into why it is “a romantic ritual” and why people find it so fascinating.   We’ll learn about the dance’s technique, emotional quality, energy and improvisation.  Robert has solid experience over years of tango dancing.  Very recently he returned from a six-month trip to South America, which included a 9-week stay in Buenos Aires where he had the opportunity of dancing with partner Martie in the home of tango.  To view Robert and Martie dancing their favorite dance together, be present at tea-time in our lobby on Thursday, August 9.  It should be added that Robert is the son-in-law and Martie is the daughter of our former Independent-Living neighbors, George and Jean Houser.                          ~Betsy Harrell for the Program Committee
