We chatted about his history as a dancer, how he got started who some of his influences are, and some of his favorite things about tango as well.
We hope you enjoy the conversation.

Tango Cafe takeout #61

Tonight on the show we were joined by Daniel Trenner.
If you are dancing tango, or have danced tango, in the US over the last 30 years,
Daniel is probably part of the reason why.

Daniel spent a good amount of time in the 1980's in Buenos Aires, before it was a tango tourist destination. During that time and after he studied with as many dancers and teachers as he could find. He made a series of over 80 instructional videos with over 40 artists capturing a very unique moment in the history of tango that would have otherwise been lost forever except through stories.

During the tours he filmed interviews, Milongas, tour workshops, special private lessons, and parties. Today he has hundreds of hours of footage from this period, mostly on VHS and Hi8 tapes. Since 2010, he has been slowly working to preserve this library by digitizing and cataloging this aging material. His digital Tango Archive, 20 years in the making, will hopefully be released this year, but much of the material has yet to be converted and cataloged. Completing the project will require the support of the greater Tango community.

There is a lot more being discussed in the show and we hope you enjoy learning about the history and growth of tango.

Tonight on the show we have Cecilia Garcia!!

Cecilia is a life long dancer, artist, and creator. We had a nice discussion about her path to tango and journey before.
She has been one of Ciko and Adam's favorite teachers for many years. 
She has a unique ability to articulate how the body works and transmit that to students.
It was nice to hear about her process as an artist and dancer and we found it to be very inspiring.

We hope you enjoy the conversation!

Stine is a bandoneonista from Denmark who has been living and playing in Buenos Aires for over 10 years.
She shared her wonderful music and played a very inspiring live piece for us as well.

Silvia Ceriani also called in from Buenos Aires. Dancer, teacher, DJ, and historian she shared a lot of knowledge about a period of time she refers to as, "when tango went into a cave."
We listened to music from lesser known but amazing orchestra's from the 50's and 60's and learned about them and the time period when they were playing. She also told us about what was happening in the dance community as well as in the music community during that time.

It was a very fun and interesting show!!
