The Deschutes Public Library is pleased to announce "Argentine Tango: The Dance and its Cultural Roots", a demonstration and discussion of the fascinating history of Argentine Tango. The presentation, by Alicia Jumar-Loffler of Bend Tango, will take place on Tuesday, September 30th at the Bend Public Library in the Brooks Room at 6:30 p.m. This program is free and open to the public.
Tango enthusiast and teacher Alicia Jumar-Loffler has over 30 years of experience as modern dance teacher. Born in Argentina, the Tango has always been a part of Alicia's life. Her parents met dancing "Nostalgias" in Buenos Aires and she remembers dancing as a small child in the arms of her father. She has been involved in Tango activities in Bend since 2003 and says, "Any person who can walk can learn to dance, regardless of gender, age, dance experience or body type."
