The Tanguero Workshop has a place for all levels and genres of musicians. Seasoned tangueros come to share ideas with others from around the globe, to get access to unique tango resources, and to play and study with tango maestros. Those newer to tango are introduced to a multifaceted tango experience, learning solid idiomatic tango technique for their instrument, and participating in different elements of tango culture in a supportive, community environment. All attendees, amateur to professional, are matched with people of similar levels. Although we do not require a formal audition to be accepted to this workshop, newcomers are asked to submit a sample of playing in video made within a year so that we can assign you the right materials.
The workshop takes place in historic downtown Urbana, Illinois. Our main facility will be the Community Center for the Arts, 202 W Main St, Urbana, IL 61801. In walking distance are restaurants, cafés, and entertainment venues.
“Tanguero” refers to both tango professionals and people who are passionate about any part of tango culture, including history, music, dance, lyrics, theater. If any of these aspects describe how you feel about tango, or if you are interested in learning, this workshop is for you!
