Tango Boise

Argentine Tango In Boise

MOMO WORKSHOP WEEKEND (Feb 5- 8, 2015)

A message from Momo:

"Hi Boise! So excited to be coming back to share tango with you all. Courtney Moore will be helping in the workshops to share insights and information on musicality, follower's technique and whatever else is deemed to be of benefit. Like my previous visits, we will be focusing on how to create more enjoyable social dancing for ourselves and our partners by focusing on technique, connection, musicality, and vocabulary.

The workshops are structured to offer something for everyone. Other than the advanced couples class on Friday, all workshops will be All Levels and partner rotation will occur. Show up, work hard, have fun, and be prepared to experience a big leap in your tango development. Looking forward to seeing you there!"

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

MOMO SMITT

DSC_0413_01_ro.jpg

Over the past five plus years, Momo has been traveling nonstop; teaching, performing, DJing, and rapping at tango festivals and in local communities across the United States and Canada. He organizes tango festivals in both Portland and Ashland Oregon with an emphasis on community building and comfortable, connected social dancing. Known for his embrace and his musicality, he works to spread this style of dance throughout the tango world. In Momo's workshops you will experience a slower, simpler dance where the music and the partnership, not the steps, are the primary focus. Like performance, DJ-ing is about working the crowd. Momo loves watching the dancers and building the night around the energy in the room.  

Momo will be assisted by Courtney Moore.
