Siempre Tango Ottawa holds a monthly milonga, on the first or second Saturday of the month.
Saturday, November 5 with DJ Jewel
6:00 to 7:00 PM
Isabelle Oppenheim will be presenting her master’s thesis before the upcoming La Capital! Her talk and Q&A will be from 6 to 7 PM. It’s free!
She has spent the last few years completing an MA in Dance at UQAM, and this thesis is the culmination of her study of the moving and dancing body.
Many people who dance Argentine tango socially report experiencing blissful moments of shared connection with their partners: the merging with one’s partner as well as with music and the environment, giving the impression of being transported out of oneself and of the real world. Isabelle’s research draws on somatic education, philosophy, and psychology to examine the tango connection in detail.
Come and learn how Isabelle’s thesis, titled “The Experience of the Ecstatic and Unforgettable Connection Between Partners of Argentine Social Tango,” attempts to explain an experience that often leaves us speechless.
This presentation is meant to be accessible to any tango dancer, and non-dancers too!
7:15 to 11:30 PM
DJ Jewel will bring the heat! Let’s go!
