Santa Monica, CA
TANGO FOR ENTREPRENEURS: Attention, Connection, Collaboration, Improvisation
The challenges of running a business can put partnerships under strain. Yet solid partnerships allow entrepreneurs to deliver on their promises.
During this event -- part Tango workshop, part Tango demonstration, and part Tango free dance -- you'll discover the underlying 'Tango' that has the power to enliven and refresh your connections with clients, advisors, team-mates.
Meet new members of the community, find common ground, and get synced up through working together to solve simple partnering puzzles that involve nothing more physically demanding than standing on one foot.
All are welcome. No experience needed. No partner needed. Footwear: any.
Also: Enjoy a beer tasing compliments of Bushido Brewery

8pm-8:15pm: Improvised Tango demonstrations - social and professional dancers.
8:15pm-9pm: Socializing and Tango “Practica” (an informal Tango learning laboratory)
