2019 - Tanichezini Activities
This year I decided to set up a nonprofit organization to help the Portland Community grow and support its various activities in a more consistent way.
Some of the main organizers in Portland have supported the effort by joining the board of directors.
We are still in the infancy of the project, but things are shaping up quite nicely. More information is available at www.portlandtangoassociation.com.
This year I am very happy to host Gaston Olguin directly from Argentina for the first time in Portland, OR to teach a series of workshops on the week end of July 27-28, 2019.
Gaston is part of the young tango dancers who work with Luciana Valle in her Buenos Aires Tango Intensivo.
He is newly wed and is traveling the US with his husband on a working honey moon. I am excited to introduce him to the Portland Tango Community , his insights into the dance are really amazing!
I am already in full gear working as the executive director of the Portland Tango Festival 2019. The endeavor is occupying a lot of my thoughts . I am bringing together an amazing group of teachers and a very interesting group of DJs to make us dancing with no rest! With the help of Megan we will also have an amazing group of musicians to have great live music into the mix.
