Passion Of Buenos Aires

Experience Argentine tango when the Passion of Buenos Aires comes to Kuala Lumpur. The festival aims to let this beautiful dance of the heart foster goodwill, happiness and harmony among the participants. For many, dance has become a passion. It lifts the spirit, exercises the body and mind and allows one to enjoy the company of others in a genial way.

The festival will be held in the Annexe Gallery in Central Market. Supported by the Embassy of Argentina, the festival continues to attract more tango enthusiasts in its fourth year. The tango maestros attending the festival are Marcelo Gutierez and Johana Cessiecq, Pablo Nievas and Valerie Zunino, and Stefano Fava. The pace of the festival will be relaxed with emphasis on instruction and fun. 

Workshops will be conducted from April 22 to 24, from 2.00 pm to 5.30 pm with two sessions daily. Every night there will be milongas (social tango dance parties) and Saturday night will be  'Tango Tradisi' the Gala Dinner and Dance, where the three pairs of instructors will delight the crowd with their performances. The milongas and 'Tango Tradisi', held at the ballroom of the Raintree Club are open to the public.  (The Star)
