"Mezcla" a collaboration by Ventana Ballet & Esquina Tango

Presented by EsquinaTango Cultural Society of Austin and Ventana Ballet at Esquina Tango

In the midst of the pandemic, two East Austin performance art favorites collaborate to present a safe and festive evening of live music and dance. Ventana Ballet and Esquina Tango join socially distant hands to present Mezcla, a production of “mixed” dance styles!

Tickets are available for $45 per platform, where each platform can fit up to four people in a party. Capacity is capped at 10 platforms per show.

Enter the tucked away courtyard of Esquina Tango through a lit curtain where audience members can indulge in an intimate performance experience, yet they can sit safely with their party on a platform that is socially distanced from adjacent patrons and performers.

Each performance will last approximately 45 minutes and will include alternating presentations of tango, ballet, flamenco, and more. Ventana Ballet and Esquina Tango have taken great caution and care to ensure the safety of all performers and patrons during this event.

With an emphasis on Argentine and other Latin American traditions, we aim to foster personal wellness while promoting an appreciation for Latino cultures. Through a lot of hard work, labor, and community love, we converted an old church building that was located in East Austin and practically falling apart into a tango studio.
