Join us for a queer tango class at the DC Center with instructor Liz Sabatiuk of Tango Mercurio. This course for beginner students will combine instruction on fundamental tango vocabulary and technique with discussion and exploration of the assumptions we make about gender, masculinity, and femininity–and how that might affect our dancing and our interactions with others. Students will be invited to experiment with both roles and reflect on their experiences.

Liz began her tango journey in 2005 in Montevideo, Uruguay, the lesser-known co-birthplace of tango, across the river from Buenos Aires. She has studied with Argentine maestr@s like Chicho Frumboli and Juana Sepulveda, Pablo Rodriguez and Corina Herrera, Martin Maldonado and Maurizio Ghella, and Juan Cantone and Sol Orozco. Stateside influences include Jake Spatz, Aja Fenn, and Sharna Fabiano. Liz values and cultivates versatility, honesty, playfulness, and musicality in her classes and on the dance floor. She manages the Queer Tango Program at Tango Mercurio.
