RIT Presents The Tango, Dec. 8


Most people don’t know much about the tango—a dance featuring more than just lovers marching across the floor with roses between their teeth.

A lecture and demonstration of the tango at Rochester Institute of Technology will feature a socio-historical view of the dance. The session, at 7:30 p.m., on Thursday, Dec. 8, in Webb Auditorium, James E. Booth Building, is part of the College of Liberal Arts Global Engagements Lecture and Performance Series.

Fine Arts professor Carl Atkins and Foreign Language professor Irene Coromina will offer a socio-historical view of the dance, the people and the mystery of tango. Following the lecture, dancers Heather Roeffe and Johnny Robinson of the School of Film and Animation will perform a demonstration. The event is free and open to the public.
