West Coast Swing Meets Tango in SWANGO!

Ten years ago choreographers Mariella Franganillo and Robert Royston gave birth to a new form of dance: “Swango”. Franganillo,from the world of Argentine tango and Royston, from the arena of west coast swing joined with fabled Tony Award winning book writer Rupert Holmes (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) to produce a new “Romeo and Juliet ” story that would fuze the two dance forms together in a way that had never been seen before. Now the Schimmel Center is very proud to be producing the revival of the off-Broadway hit that first enchanted audiences a decade ago. Whether you are coming for the timeless romantic story, the sensuality of the Argentine tango or the lively thrill of west coast swing, there is something for everyone in this refreshing theatrical production that continues to push boundaries in the world of ball room dance. Watch the stunning trailer below and be sure to book your tickets!
