The Hot Club of Hulaville - Ballad

Ballad... love in the lost and found

“The heart is a very, very resilient little muscle. It really is.”
Woody Allen - Hannah and Her Sisters

Despite the title, "Ballad… love in the lost & found” is not a show filled with slow sad songs of grief and pain.

Rather, it is a celebration of the heart...We are made to love and lose and love again.

So these songs and music, they show us the way.

Featuring the music of great pianist Gene Harris and iconic guitarist Joe Pass.

Gene Harris was an American jazz pianist known for his warm sound and blues and gospel infused style that is known as soul jazz.

Joe Pass was an American jazz guitarist of Sicilian descent. He is considered one of the greatest jazz guitarists of the 20th century. He created possibilities for jazz guitar through his style of chord-melody, his knowledge of chord inversions and progressions, and his use of walking basslines and counterpoint during improvisation. Pass worked often with pianist Oscar Peterson and vocalist Ella Fitzgerald.

Featuring Duane Padilla on violin, Josh Kaye on keyboards, and Sonny Silva on guitar and the wonderful Sherry Graham on vocals.

Milonga 8:00 - 10:30

Argentine Tango is a beautiful dance for young and the young-at-heart: the embrace, the walk, the pivot, and the turn – these are all that comprise of this lovely dance. Learn these and much, much, more!


Larry & Yara are passionate about dancing and spreading the love for Argentine tango… patient and articulate, Larry & Yara pull from over two decades of dance training, spanning not only Argentine Tango but Ballet, Modern, Tap, Lindy Hop, Salsa and more to help you learn and excel at Tango.


Learn to Tango with grace, poise and confidence. You don’t need a partner to begin. Wear comfortable shoes with leather soles. Dress is casual.

 

FUNDAMENTAL CLASS (6:30 - 7:30) as always, our focus will be on Tango "fundamentals" for Beginning Tango Students in the development of balance, connection, movement technique, musicality, etc. However all levels are welcome as it is very important to have beginning Tango Students dance with higher level dancers to increase our overall understanding and experience in Tango.

 

Note: Please feel free to stay and dance during the Milonga (there is no extra cost for this). Please try and get as much "dance time" on the dance floor, as that is how we ALL improve. Larry and Yara will explain the rules (codes) of the social dance floor if you're not sure.

 

INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED "technique" CLASS (7:30 - 8:00) will follow the Fundamentals class, and we will offer a variety of techniques and sequences from week to week that can be utilized on the social dance floor. Last week we worked on: FLOOR BOLEO FROM CROSS SYSTEM, OVER ROTATION FOR THE FOLLOWER into a FORWARD PIVOT so that the dancers can move along in the line of dance. These different techniques will stimulate your improvisational learning skills, and expand your repertoire and understanding of the music.


Come ready to Tango!
