WITH the new series of Strictly Come Dancing now on our TV screens, why not catch the original Dirty Dancing in Welwyn Garden City later this week?
Think of a red-lit, neon flecked nightclub. Sharp-dressed men and semi-dressed women stalk each other in an ongoing war of the sexes.
The air crackles with passion. There is only one place that feelings can be expressed, one place where the tension can be relieved – the dancefloor.
And only one dance that can free desires of the dancers. The tango.
The tango in all its forms – and there are many – has always been considered a dangerous dance. Charged with sensuality, precise yet fluid, intense yet public, it has played its part in revolutions and remains subversive to this day.
On Friday, October 12, the acclaimed band Tango Siempre bring this passionate art form to the Hawthorne Theatre, with the breathtaking show TangoMotion.
Having just finished a residency in the West End and subsequent tour with their previous show, Midnight Tango, the group is joined by outstanding Argentinian singer Guillermo Rozenthuler and four of the world’s leading dancers.
Having appeared in the film Evita and on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, they can promise virtuoso displays of traditional tango right through to the more modern Nuevo Tango.
Latin passion surges through this show, creating an evening of excitement that will leave you breathless and wanting more.
Tickets are £16.50, and £13.50 concesssions.
