Blue Tango

José Garófalo

March 10-13, 2017


(Workshop Flyer)



A major force for tango, an innovator and consummate artist, José Garófalo (from Buenos Aires) will be in Boston March 10-13 as part of his US tour.

With 30 years of tango and an
extensive knowledge of tango's artistry and history, José is an important resource and link between milongueros of the Golden Age and new tango trends. José has taught tango at the University of Buenos Aires for almost 20 years, and also organizes major tango events, shows and theatre productions. In 2000, he co-founded Porteño y Bailarín, a popular milonga in Buenos Aires. He is President of the Civil Cambalache Association and has directed the Cambalache Festival since 2004. He has produced multimedia tango and theatre productions and was a juror for stage and salon tango at the International Tango Festival in Buenos Aires.

José is an excellent instructor and has been in high demand for teaching and performing this past week in NYC (see performance videos.) Take this special opportunity to study with him!

On Saturday March 11, José is our Special Guest at Blue Milonga!
