Tango! was performed in 2001.

Director and choreographer, Debbie Goodwin conceived this project as part of her work for a master’s degree in Dance at CSUS. The program is presented under the auspices of the CSUS Department of Theatre and Dance.

¡TANGO! is the story of Sacramento’s Argentine Tango Community. An ethnographic view of this community reveals a group of dancers with a diverse culture and a common passion for tango. The members of this community emulate not only the dance, but also the music, customs, style of dress, code of behavior and language. The culture of this community is reflected through this production. Key symbols, attitudes and customs acquired is demonstrated in the choreography.
