Tango Boise

Argentine Tango In Boise

Back to All Events

DJ Workshop, part 1

  • Keynetics Building 917 South Lusk Street Boise, ID, 83706 United States (map)

Have you ever wanted to DJ tango events? Or maybe you've always wanted a deeper understanding of tango music? Perhaps you're curious about the ins and outs of what your DJs go through to make an awesome event?

Whatever your motivation, this workshop is for you!

Upon completing the workshop, you will have the opportunity to co-DJ tango events in Boise to start and eventually DJ events solo for free admission and even get paid, too. 

Over the course of two Tuesday sessions, we'll cover topics like:

  • Where to start and how to improve
  • Where to get music (I'll give you a big head start!)
  • Tango orchestras and styles
  • Using sound equipment
  • Building tandas and playlists
  • Reading a room/influencing mood
  • Resources to continue your education

Please bring a notepad and something to write with and flash drive (at least 10 GB) labeled with your name.
Be prepared for 3 hours of homework a week (6 hours total).

Tuesday, December 1st and 8th, 7:00pm-8:30pm (both sessions are required)
$30 (cash or check please)
