This is shaping up to be one of the greatest weekends to dance in Portland this year so far! There are several events happening Friday through Sunday concerning our favorite alibi: tango.
Friday night (April 29th, 2011)
1000 Cranes Milonga – Japan Relief Benefit – Organized by Megan Pingree
@ The New Market Theater Atrium (enter through The Purest Cafe, 115 SW Ash St, Portland)
Japan has suffered a multi-faceted catastrophe which calls for an international response. That means a lot of INDIVIDUAL responses, channeled effectively!
…Have Fun and Raise Money!
We aim to have an especially fun tango event,
while raising money for Mercy Corps’ invaluable work.
Note the vintage Portland tango-virgin venue! – the historic New Market Theatre (ground level plus mezzanine dance floors)
Luxe Milonga is giving away 2 raffle items to support this great cause:
- Full pass to this weekend of Luxe Milonga events (Luxe Milonga & 2 workshops on Sunday). Retail value: $40
- 1 pass to the next 3 Luxe Milongas. Retail value: $60
