Experience “Forever Tango” for free!

We have two pairs of tickets to give away to Luis Bravo’s internationally acclaimed dance spectacular Forever Tango, which arrives in Spokane on Saturday, Jan. 16, at 8 p.m. at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox!

Forever Tango is music, drama, culture, a way of life. The popularity of tango has exploded all over the world. Sensuous and sophisticated, the tango is a feeling that you dance. A story is channeled through the flick of the leg, the tug of a hand, the tap of a foot, and the arch of an eyebrow. Sixteen world-class tango dancers, one vocalist and the eleven-piece Forever Tango orchestra will leave you breathless.

Forever Tango took San Francisco by storm in 1994 and set the record for its longest-running touring show: 92 weeks at Theater On The Square, and hailed as “Forever magical” by the San Francisco Chronicle. The show then moved to Broadway and toured the United States widely, as well as making appearances all over the world.

Contest ends on Sunday, Jan. 10, so Enter to Win today!
