Dear Esquina Community,
UPDATE: We are doing live online classes! Catch us on our facebook page for our live streaming here.
We will also start posting on YouTube, so make sure to subscribe to our channel here!
While it saddens us to have to temporarily close our doors, we stand in solidarity with humanity by taking these preventative measures against COVID-19. However, what makes us Esquina Tango is our love for dance, culture, and community on a regular basis. It’s part of our mission statement —
“Esquina Tango Cultural Society of Austin is a non-profit organization striving to build a vibrant and diverse community in East Austin and beyond through performing arts and health. With an emphasis on Argentine and other Latin American traditions, we aim to foster personal wellness while promoting an appreciation for Latino cultures.”
Last Tuesday, 3/17, we had our first Esquina Virtual Town Hall.
Monica Caivano, Gustavo Simplis, (the founders/directors of Esquina), and the Board talked about the decision to cancel classes, our plans, and had an open exchange and conversation with our Esquina family. Click here to download the audio recording to catch up on the conversation.
It’s important more than ever to stay together and connected. It’s through your continued support over the years and this community that makes us who we are. Together, we will continue to stand strong.
🟥 For Students With Active Passes🟥
