Noche Porteña!
Woodstock Tango Presents a Night of Argentine Tango
Tango Beginners Class, Live Music for Dancing, and Special Dance Performance

Learn how they really tango in Buenos Aires, birthplace of the most sensual of dances! An amazing evening of traditional Tango Argentino, with live music for social dancing by the JP Jofre Hard Tango Trio—one of the hottest tango ensembles in North America —complemented by recorded music from the “Golden Age of Tango” with DJ La Rubia del Norte, who has spun tunes at the most famous milongas (social clubs) in Buenos Aires and New York City.

The evening includes a dazzling tango performance by internationally renowned performers, world tango champion Cristian Correa and Angeles Chañaha, and an introductory class taught by Woodstock Tango founder Ilene Marder. No partner or experience necessary.

For the past three years, tango night has been an enormous hit at the Spiegeltent, packing the house with dancers and tango aficionados of all levels. Advance tickets strongly suggested.
