Tango and Rock. This unique party combines two very different dance styles: Argentine Tango and Old School Funk, Soul, and Rock 'n Roll.
Mixer Game. Doors open at 7:30pm and singles can immediately start playing a mixer game. Each person will be given a card with a small print of a painting by Pim Stallmann. The paintings come from Stallmann's tango painting website, tangoschilderijen.nl, and are used with his permission.
Ostensibly, the goal of the mixer game is to find a person of the opposite sex who has the same tango painting. Once party goers find matching cards, they come back to the front desk and get a raffle ticket and another game card so they can continue "to work the room." Later in the evening drawings are held for some nice prizes. The real goal of the mixer game is make it easy for people to chat and make new friends, possibly for dating and romance.
At 7:45pm there will be an optional Argentine tango lesson for beginners with no prior dance experience required. This will be a great chance for singles to learn a new social skill and be introduced to something new: the joy of Argentine tango music and dance. Live Music At 8:15 a live Argentine tango band featuring Marcel Puig on guitar and Bocha on bandoneon. A bandoneon is an especially expressive accordion like instrument developed in Germany and an integral part of Argentine tango music.
The tango band will play until 10pm, after that, Miguel a hot DJ from Las Vegas will take over and play mainly old school rock from the 70's, 80's and 90's including Latin favorites like salsa, merenge, and cha-cha-cha until midnight. Some Argentine tango tunes will be thrown into the mix as well to keep the tango theme alive.
"We are mixing Argentine tango with a variety of old school dance hits," said Phil Seyer, director of Professionals Guild, "so everyone gets a chance to enjoy their favorite music. At the same time, we are introducing a new cultural elemental into our parties."
