Squaw Valley Institute, tango talk and demo

The Squaw Valley Institute presents:

Tango: A journey to happiness

In 2006, Camille Cusumano went to Buenos Aires planning to stay two months. But after two days, she cancelled her return ticket and that trip turned into a year and a half and the book, TANGO, AN ARGENTINE LOVE STORY (Seal Press). She has now lived in Argentina three-and-a-half years. Camille will perform a live demonstration of the dance, Argentine tango, talk about its magic and the writing of her book, as well as of the tango/writing communities in Buenos Aires. She’ll tell you the pros and cons of quitting your day job to go live in another hemisphere, “write” now!

Before you come,  I hope you read my book, Tango, an Argentine Love Story—whether you get it from a friend, or buy it in a bookstore, at Amazon or other online stores, or even on Kindle. What I love about that book, my favorite of all the ones I’ve written or worked on, is that I got to write of all the things I love—food, travel, my Zen practice, yoga, my father, my mother, my nine brothers and sisters, Sicily, France, Buenos Aires, and tango, tango, tango. And a lot of other little subjects like love (the many types), life itself—and even death (of my father).
