Argentine tango will be taking over Canada's capital city this winter, so dance enthusiasts may wish to make plans to visit for their upcoming holiday. At the National Arts Centre's Southam Hall on February 21st, the talented Tango Pasion dance company will journey all the way from Argentina to give Canadian audiences a taste of this intense genre.
The Argentine tango is an iconic dance that incorporates classic, quick moves born of the Latino culture. Every artist that takes the stage has mastered this amazing art form and will present coupled dances paired with live music that will have audiences amazed and tapping their feet. The passionate nature of the show may not be suitable for all ages, but couples on vacation or families with older children can have a memorable time when they attend.
This type of dance has been around for years and displays the passion of the Argentine people. It translates to this show through everything from the costumes to the couples' dance chemistry. Several experts in theatre have hailed the performance as a masterpiece of tango, calling it a one-of-a-kind show that should not be missed. Not only will the dance troupe be at Ottawa's National Arts Centre, but they will also be making stops at other prominent cities in the area, such as Toronto, Quebec City and Kingston.
If travellers will not be in the area during the time of the performance, or perhaps want to learn more about tango themselves, they can visit Ottawa's leading Argentine tango dance studio. Called Siempre Tango, this facility welcomes dancers of all ages to join in on classes hosted by professional instructors from the area. Guests may reserve a spot in a beginners' lesson or take a training course on the weekends if they already have a grasp on tango fundamentals. Those who are tying the knot in the future could even book a lesson to wow wedding guests at an upcoming ceremony.
Visitors interested in more information about either the Tango Pasion show or Siempre Tango dance studio can visit the respective organizations' websites to start planning out holiday activities. Both of these happenings in Ottawa can make for an exciting trip while enjoying all that the vibrant city of Ottawa has to offer.
