Tango Musicality Workshops with Erskine Maytorena and the 

Q Tango Orchestra


Whitney Arts Center: 591 Whitney Ave, New Haven, CT

Created in July, 2009 by Erskine Maytorena, a third generation tango musician and opera singer, QTANGO performs authentic Argentine tango arrangements throughout the U.S. Specializing in the traditional tango music of the "Golden Age" of the great Argentine tango orchestras, QTANGO's dynamic and powerful music keeps dancers on the floor and listeners enthralled. Every song is a novella; a story of love, betrayal, desperation and hope. QTANGO's musicians give the audience a unique and intimate experience, a journey into the romance, passion and elegance of tango. Every performance is sophisticated, engaging, nostalgic, and moving.


Tango Musicality Workshops with Erskine Maytorena and the Q Tango Orchestra

·     Emphasis is on individual work; no partner needed, all levels welcome.

·      Material is non-theoretical; we will be moving and dancing 90% of the time.

·      No musical knowledge necessary. We use everyday language that anyone can understand.

·      Live bandoneon, piano and violin will illustrate examples, hear the elements clearly and distinctively.

Even the Simplest Steps can be Expressive and Dynamic when matched to the drive and passion of the music.

 Don't miss this special opportunity to understand and dance the music. When they came in August 2015, many people were away for summer vacations and missed this very special event. Those who were there are very strong in offering encouragement to not miss it this time.

·      The secrets of Tango Rhythm. The quickest way to be a musical dancer.
