    317 Chapel Street, Ottawa, ON

    One of the biggest drawbacks to workshop weekends is not being able to remember what you’ve learned. Cement your newly-acquired knowledge with some immediate practice!

    The práctica will be extra-long to give you time to have a break before coming back to us.

    Also… a special offering: Tomás is offering 4 micro-sessions of 10 minutes each. This is a perfect way to get some one-on-one with your teacher to ask him any questions you might have from the weekend. Slots at 6:45, 7:00, 7:15, and 7:30 available. ($15 each, one per person / couple, in addition to the práctica cover. Contact brigitte at Brigitte@ottawaalexandertechnique.ca to reserve your spot!)

    A few months ago, several members of our tango community joined an effort to privately sponsor a family of 9 refugees from Syria. These sponsors found an apartment, furnished it, and put warm clothing in the closets. Moving forward, this family needs funds to help them settle into their new Canadian life until they can start providing for themselves.

    Do you feel moved to help and welcome them to Ottawa with open arms?

    Step onto the dance floor! We invite dancers of any skill level to perform. We are particularly interested in people who do not normally perform. The plan is to have 4 couples dancing at once to a song. We’ll plan on playing 3 songs, for a total of 12 couples performing.

    If you are part of the Siempre Tango community and have wanted an opportunity to show off your tango skills to your friends and family, here is your chance!

    Invite your loved ones and friends. The point is to bring people from outside the tango community for an “open house” format. We want to:
    – spread the word about our fundraising efforts
    – show people what tango is all about
    – increase donations via a bake sale, raffle, etc.

    More information to come.

    (After the demos, you and your guests can enjoy live music by the Bytown Tango Band. Admission for BTB is separate: $15 for tango dancers in advance until Dec. 11 / $5 for non-dancers)
