On any given Tuesday, Michelle Gorre’s students push through more of what feels like a workout instead of a tango class at Sierra 2 Center. She guides the class through warm-ups, isolations, drills, routines, floor work, and cool-down. The participants move through exercises to become better dance partners.
With the same discipline and energy she expects from her class, Gorre is raising funds to support the cure with her TNT Leukemia & Lymphoma Society training team. She is very close to reaching her goal, with a little bit further to go.
This Friday, April 13, 2012, a tango dance party will be held at The Capital Athletic Club on 1515 8th St.
At 7 p.m., there will be a beginner lesson with Gorre and a more advanced lesson with Homer & Cristina Ladas who will be performing later that night.
The lesson will start newbies off on the right foot with basics then experienced tango afficionados will engage the milonga.
There will also be a drawing to win clothing, accessories, jewelry, wine, art, private dance lessons and other goodies.
A suggested $20 donation is encouraged at the front desk. The benefit raises funds to find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. To find out more, see the team in training webpage.
