Tango Fire 

When: Thu., Jan. 25, 7:30 p.m. 2018
Price: $29-$99
Since originating within European immigrant communities of Argentina in the late 19th century, the art of tango has become an international favorite with its seductive melodies and fiery footwork. Perhaps best defined in the 1998 Carlos Saura film Tango, the art form continues an evolution spurred by the rise of television dance competition shows and YouTube streaming. On Thursday, Tango superstar German Cornejo brings his world-renowned dance troupe, the Tango Fire company of Bueno Aires, to the Empire courtesy of ARTS San Antonio. Cornejo, along with partner Gisela Galeassi, are best known to American audiences for their appearances on America’s Got Talent and the Jennifer Lopez-produced reality show ¡Q’Viva! The Chosen. Dancing to the music of tango master composers (including Piazzolla, Gardel and Pugliese), Cornejo and company offer a fresh glimpse into the world of Argentine tango.
