Tango Round Table: Women led discussions on argentine tango

Soooo.. I had every intention of sharing this when it began, but it was too good to do anything other than listen, but hopefully you can check out the recording!

Learning how to dance can be a HARD and revealing process. We often feel physically unequipped (or maybe our partner is and WE are perfect) and we express ourselves in frustrating ways. Our next topic is a thru point through all this: our communication. As teachers, how do we meet people where they are at, find specific ways of getting through, and still feel like we are teaching a class about tango, and not in a therapist's chair. How do we stay in tango partnerships and not kill each other, and equipping people with physical and communicational toolsets to enliven learning and keep it fun.

Join a panel of glorious educators, that bring their somatic and educational backgrounds into tango teaching for a more vibrant and holistic approach

Did you catch this little detail on Virtual Vinyls & Wine? It seems to be a crew favorite, so we thought you might be curious, too. A few months into the pandemic, when our founder realized it was going to be a while before she could dance again, she picked up Watercolor Painting.

Well, fast forward a few more months and as it got closer to the day of our first shoot, she had some leftover paint and figured this might be a good way to have some notes to reference during the interviews.

So, yes, these cue cards that you will see throughout the show were hand painted by our host and founder Pooja!

Happy International Tango Day!

I know it’s tough to feel like celebrating, this year, where we have all been at home, some of us going on months without the dance. But it is also why we need to remember and celebrate it, somehow anyway!

There is still music to be listened to, history to learn and maybe even some old movies to watch! We’ll kick you off with some #trangotrivia to start.

Did you know that International Tango Day is on December 11th as this was Carlos Gardel’s birthday? Gardel was a French Argentine singer, songwriter, composer, and actor. An influential figure, he tragically died in an airplane crash, still at the peak of his career on June 24, 1935.

He is considered the archetypical Argentine tango gentleman by many within the country, but his influence was even further reaching. Gardel was a role model and an inspiration for Sinatra, who he encouraged to take part in “Major Bowes Amateur Hour’ contest, which Sinatra won with his band the Hoboken Four (go NJ!).

The legacy of Tango is not only in its dance, but in its larger spirit of collaboration and bringing people together, despite whatever hardships we are facing. So, we hope you find a way to celebrate it today!

This year things look very different for many of us, and perhaps that’s why this year more than most we need to hold on to and express the things that we have gratitude for.

While 2020 has brought its challenges, it has also brought us a deeper sense of partnership and community.

Here are some behind the scenes shots with and by some of the amazing co-collaborators who we are so very grateful for this year! Thank you so much River Rat Films LLC , APT 115 and of course last but certainly not least Amanda Hoffman ART for believing in the vision around Virtual Vinyls & Wine.

And of course to all of you on the other side of this screen, for following our journey, despite the change in pace around here! ;)

For all those needing a warm Guardia Vieja hug, right now, this one brought me back some lovely memories. Lots of love to everyone!

PC: Stella Hao

Thank you so much to everyone who was a part of Cruzadito I Tango x Art. Y’all brought such beautiful energy and it truly filled every corner of the space.

Even before the milonga started on Sunday afternoon, I remember a moment when Nathan was doing his sound check and after he was done tinkering with all of his adjustments and played one of the first test Tango songs on vinyl, I found myself crying.

They were pure tears of joy. The whole room vibrated with the positive energy y’all infused in it and it was palpable. It’ll stay with me for a very long time and I am so grateful for all the magic you brought to this event.

This event would not have been possible without the Dream Team, the Sponsors, and especially without the amazing group of Participants. We were an intimate bunch, but we were mighty. And the people who missed out REALLY missed out! ;)

Sending all of you so much love and big Texas size hugs!

Guardia Vieja is creating Virtual Vinyls & Wine and Tango Outside Tango | Patreon

2020 was supposed to be a very different year for all of us. And while we took a fork in the road, we are starting to find our way back to some of our original ideas in a new way.

If you have been following along the Guardia Vieja journey, you know that in March 2020 we kicked off Tango Vinyls & Wine. While we managed to host one event in partnership with our amazing friends at Apt 115, March was the same month that COVID really came to town, and so it was also the last one we were able to host.

And then somehow in April, we were still feeling somewhat hopeful that maybe we would be able to start working on our big project of 2020, Tango Outside Tango, a web based docuseries. We even released a little sneak peak. But by May, reality set in and we got a lot more real with the COVID-19 Tango Sentiment Survey (link in bio).

Well, this 'coronacoaster' has had its ups and downs, but we're getting off this ride and getting back on track with the rest of 2020!

We have decided to merge the two big ideas we had for this year into one with Virtual Vinyls & Wine!! We are taking the concept of the event and bringing it to you in the virtual format of our docuseries project, Tango Outside Tango.

We hope you will consider becoming one of our Patrons and come join the journey on Patreon as we continue to create through this year, with episodes releasing in 2021!

We're just about ready to share what we've been cooking up, so keep your eyes on all things Guardia Vieja for a very special announcement on September 30th! We can't wait to share what we've come up with.
