Tango Lessons vs. Martinis with Matisse

by Ilya


As you might know, I teach Tango lessons at OUMA (Oglethorpe University Museum of Art) on Monday nights. Argentine Tango is a perfect complement to the carefully selected Art exhibits of OUMA. Currently we enjoy gently illuminated Henry Matisse drawings. Our students think that Tango dance, music and Matisse go hand in hand.

March 2010, enter martini. Yes, as in “shaken, not stirred”, Grey Goose vodka martini. Every Monday (except the first one) during the month of March there will be a special event in the Museum sponsored by Grey Goose:

Mondays in March: Martinis with Matisse
March 8, 15, 22,29, 2010, 6:30 – 8:30p

View the current exhibition, Henri Matisse – A Celebration of French Poets & Poetry while sipping on a Grey Goose Martini and enjoying hors d’oeuvres provided by Brookhaven Bistro. $15 includes two drink tickets and hors d’oeuvres. Limited tickets available. To purchase tickets, click here.

Martini and Matisse do go together well (martini in moderation, of course). As martinis and dancing do not match, I had to move Tango classes in March from Mondays to Tuesdays. We will be back to our regular Monday nights Tango beginning April. (The next Beginner Tango Course will start on Tuesday, March 16, 7p).

If you have never visited OUMA – here is a perfect occasion. Those who like art will be happy seeing Matisse, those who like martinis will be satisfied too with the Best Rated smooth vodka taste! And, I am sure, most of you would enjoy both.

What was the expression – dance responsibly, drink till you drop? Or was it the other way around? Leave a comment… :)
