Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) will offer a night of elegant and passionate music and dance Saturday, March 10 at 8 p.m. as Washington, D.C.’s QuinTango, a string quintet dedicated to the music of the tango, is joined by Argentine dancers Victoria Sarquisse and Federico Jorquera.
Following the performance will be a Milonga (Tango dance party) class led by the featured dancers, currently based in Tampa, Fla.
Sarquisse and Jorquera, born and raised in Argentina, are young salon and show style tango dancers and instructors.
Besides being the featured dancers in the U.S. tour of QuinTango, the couple was featured at the Midsummer Night Swing festival at the Lincoln Center in New York City, performed with some of the best tango dancers in the world at the United States Tango Congress and Festival in Miami.
Tickets for the “Milonga” class are sold separately from the QuinTango performance. The audience is encouraged to stay and watch or participate while enjoying refreshments, for a nominal cost.
Funding for QuinTango, with featured dancers, is provided by Main Stage Supporting sponsor TD Bank and the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
