Here's a message from festival host and organizer Karen Whitesell:
Meet in the Middle Tango Festival
Sept 17-20, 2009
Mt. Vernon, Missouri
This is my 6th year and want to welcome you back and invite new friends for sure. This year promises to be even better than ever. Charles Roques has moved to Mt Vernon from New York City and is a great asset to our teaching staff and our local tango community. Gustavo Benzecry and Maria Olivara accepted my call for Argentine Dancers and I am thrilled. I knew if they were so well received in Portland and if Ray has signed them for the Chicago Mini Festival, then I couldn't go wrong. Also this year I have invited James and Mariallan from Memphis to teach a beginner track. I have known them for many years and they are very good social dancers.
I have an added treat for you at Meet in the Middle Sept 17-21. I have invited Helaine Treitman to join us on Thursday for a special dinner and talk, and on Friday morning to give her special "Dragon-Slayer Seminar for Tangueros", featuring "THE TANGUEROS' 14 DEADLY ERRORS" featuring "THE TANGUEROS' 14 DEADLY ERRORS - How to identify your . . . "
