Lawrence Tango Club heats up
The group works to revive the traditional dance.
There’s just something so alluring about tango — the South American music, the elegant footwork, the close embraces, and OK, maybe not so much certain aspects of the history — the beginnings are generally attributed to South American brothels.
The dance is currently seeing a revival, even here in downtown Lawrence.
The Lawrence Tango Club is holding its biggest event of the year, the Tango Bootcamp, on Sunday, Sept. 25, and Ad Astra Radio’s Nick Curry caught up with them at their weekly ‘practica’ to chat about their upcoming event and about the dance itself.
