Women In Tango History
Something for the music lovers!
Theresa is known as an international Tango DJ in the Encuentro Community. Many people also know her as a host of 'Bailongo' in Munich, Germany, which she established fifteen years ago. We had the great opportunity to meet Theresa at the Tango Queens Congress 2020, as a connoisseur and expert of Tango music: history, orchestras, composers and lyrics. Her appearance in the Congress was a delight, she enriched it with her profound knowledge and deep insight on women in Argentine Tango history which we now want to share with you.
Did you know that one of our favorite tunes "desde el alma" was composed by a 14 year old girl? Curios? Good.
Theresa's carefully researched presentation will cater to both newbies who want to learn about their favorite tango tunes, but also the seasoned "Tango nerds" who want to know more. 🙂 We can't wait to share this with you!
What are we offering?
We are offering Theresa's presentation on "Women In Tango History" live on Zoom exclusively for Tango Qu[arant]eening. The session will take place on Saturday 2nd May at 16:00h Central European Time. Theresa will be available for a Q&A directly after her presentation, to answer your questions.
Due to popular demand and for a limited period... we will make the recorded Zoom video available to you on our website!

To be able to join the Zoom presentation you need to install the Zoom App on your computer or smartphone. If you cannot install the app, you can use the web browser version - you need Google Chrome and the Zoom Link + password to dial in that way. Please read the instructions guiding you to the installation carefully.
Keep in mind, that Theresa will be showing a presentation, so for the best experience, you might prefer a bigger screen (e.g. laptop will be better than a smartphone).
