Spanish and Tango Classes

Cat classSAINT JOHNSBURY-Tuesdays at Catamount Arts, adults can learn how to speak Spanish and dance the tango. Isabel Costa teaches both classes to folks wanting to explore a new culture.  She says both classes have a lot in common.


 

“They are languages," she says. "One is my native language and the other is a language that you use to communicate with your body.

 The attendees all have different reasons for attending.

Barb Walker attends because she travels.

“I went to Puerto Rico a bunch of times and felt lousy because I couldn’t speak the language,” says Walker.

But with traveling and learning about different cultures, the language isn’t the only thing that should be explored. Tango classes are also taught at Catamount Arts. Peter Lloyd takes them with his wife.

They say it’s nice that the classes are local; they won the classes through an auction at the art center.

The pair decided it would be a good idea to try out the class and see how the couple did. They say they're  learning but not without challenges.

“It’s hard to remember the steps but once you get going in a groove its kind of nice,” says Peter.

Regardless of how you communicate, Costa encourages those willing to try, to have fun.
