Singular guests enjoyed exotic cuisine, Argentinean wine and exciting Tango.

After a long week of rainy weather in Los Angeles, a celebration of dance, food and fun was in store for attendees at SingularCity’s Tantalizing Tango party at the Electric Lodge ― just off the trendy Abbot Kinney zone in Venice.
If you’ve been to Buenos Aires, you know that it’s common to see people enjoying a Sunday afternoon sipping wine, drinking coffee and dancing the tango in the plazas of this beautiful city. SingularCity created a similar ambiance with tasty empanadas from Empanada’s Place, fresh organic fruits and veggies from Whole Foods, Argentinean Cinco Sentidos wines from TasteVino Selections, delicious chocolate-flavored coffee from POMx and amazing Tango demonstrations and classes courtesy of the instructors from Oxygen Tango.

Tango, demonstrate the magic.
Stefan Fabry of Oxygen Tango, provided lessons and Tango demonstrations with his partner Mitra, and described the tango as, “The art of holding back … playing with your attraction to another person in ways other than the usual; with finesse, elegance, gentle power, subtlety and strategic understanding of the gender roles we play.”
We couldn’t agree more! The boundary between new acquaintances melted away as Stefan and Mitra demonstrated the power of Argentinean Tango. The intoxicating rhythm of the music and their entertaining teaching technique had guests willing to gaze into each other’s eyes and let the dance magic happen.

“I was amazed by the energy exchange between the men and the women,” said Kim Calvert, the editor of Singular magazine, who was at the event. “I was fascinated to see how beautifully the Tango can create such non-verbal communication between the sexes! It was a fabulous and very fun event!”
