Wednesday, January 28, 2009 • Posted January 28, 2009

(Kerrville, TX) – When Cupid shoots his arrow for a romantic evening with the someone special in your life…Cupid is always looking for ways to make the event passionate, tender, and affectionate. The phrase “It takes two to tango” might be your answer to making this Valentine’s Day an exceptionally good occasion.

The tango evokes intrigue, fascination, and passion…the raw energy and knife-edge precision of one of the most powerful dances from Buenos Aires. The tango arrived on the dance scene in Argentina at the turn of the century and has increased it popularity through the Roaring Twenties, its evolution to the world of contemporary ballroom, and its present day popularity with the #1 rated television show “Dancing with the Stars”.

Accompanied by a 4-piece Quatrotango (orchestra), Tango Fire highlights ten dancers (5 couples) and a male vocalist. The Quatrotango will feature four world-class musicians playing piano, violin, bandoneón (accordion) and Double Bass.

The first half of the program shows the nascent dance form emerging at the turn of the last century from a spirited and rhythmic dance that is the foundation for the contemporary version.

The second half of the program the mood switches to where the dance evolves to an art form. The couple’s focus is total and the elegance, emotional, and ardor of the movements emerge.

As reviewed by a recent performance in Melbourne, Australia, “This tango company is hot! It is precise, tight, well connected and supported by a band of exemplary musicians. It has no smoke and mirrors, just incredible dancing, from playful milongas to smoother classic tango numbers.”

So, plan that special evening now! Tickets ($35-$45) are available at the Cailloux Box Office (830.896.9393) for the Monday, February 9th and Tuesday, February 10th performances. Both shows will begin at 7:30 pm at the Cailloux Theater and promise to provide an evening for Cupid to remember!

Cutline: Tango Fire portrays the dance form that is the heart and soul of Buenos Aires…and you are invited to share in that heart and soul with one of the hottest companies from South America. The prestigious company, Tango Fire, will present two Kerrville performances as a prelude to St. Valentine’s Day.
