Pablo's Practica

We are so excited to be holding Pablo's Practica in person on Wednesdays at 7:30pm-10:30pm! Culture: We want to be a space that honors the spirit of Pablo Fontana who taught us to support one another, to grow as dancers and build a welcoming community through humility and kindness. Pablo's Practica is a place where dancers from across the DC community (and visitors!) can have mutual exchange and communal learning. We do that through "Circle Time," "Hello Stranger Dance," snacks, community announcements, and periodic lessons. COVID: Please record your vaccination details in this Google form ([hidden]). We'll have hand sanitizer available. Please wear a mask if you dance with someone who is wearing a mask. Lyon Village Community Center: We rent from wonderful people, who have done a great job renovating the floors and kitchen. We want to honor their work by keeping the space clean and refraining from using any powder on the floor. We recommend ordering "dance socks" for those that like a slippery surface to pivot. Cost: Initially, we will keep the entry to 5 and appreciate your flexibility as we figure out the finances after two years of virtual meetings and decide if the price needs to increase. Workshops will be priced separately. Workshops: We will hold workshops three months spread out throughout the calendar year--schedule still TBD. A huge thank you to the teachers who have carried us through the pandemic through monthly virtual lessons--Martin and Maurizio, Juan Cantone, Sol Orozco, and Marcelo Gutierrez--you have kept our spirits high and our tango engaged during a most difficult and isolating time. And thank you to the community of people who attended the lessons and held that Wednesday 7:30pm space (even virtually) until we could meet again in person. With much anticipation and joy-- Marina, Jessica, Corina, and Ronnie [hidden] BACKGROUND A group of Pablo Fontana's students started this practica to remember the many great things he taught us and to maintain the great friendships we made at his Wednesday night class at Lyon Village Community House. Everyone, however, is welcome here! Our goals are the following: 1. Keep alive Pablos dedication to good technique, improvisation, and versatility rather than steps and patterns 2. Keep learning and improving as tango dancers 3. Keep this wonderful group of people together 4. Create a welcoming atmosphere for new people 5. Have fun and keep a sense of humor Contact: Marina Bellani ([hidden]) More Info below.
