Thursday, May 4th Marta
Bautis - Birthday
Marta Bautis has been around
tango for a long time. She is a terrific dancer who loves
dancing at Firehouse, and you can find her there most
Thursday nights. Marta will pick the lucky guy to start the
birthday tango and one after another, the Firehouse
Tangueros will love cutting in.
Marta is an Argentinean filmmaker who began her career as a
photojournalist and has worked throughout Latin America. She
is an award-winning documentary filmmaker whose work has
been screened at numerous national and international film
festivals. She is also a faculty member at the School of
Contemporary Arts, Ramapo College of New Jersey and founder
of Tiempo Azul Productions.
11th - Walter Monteblanco - Birthday
As always, we are thrilled and honored to celebrate Walter's
birthday at Firehouse. Our wonderful friend Walter has been
teaching Argentine Tango since way before I knew it existed,
and he's my absolute favorite vals partner in the world as
well as one of my favorite people.
Gay will start the
celebratory dance, and I will try as hard as possible to
be second. Each of the tangueras can then have her
turn. Since Walter follows as flawlessly as he leads, we
invite the tangueros to cut in as well. I will play
music as long as there is a line.
18th and 25th
No birthdays, only great
dancing, socializing and eating with your Firehouse
