A Taste of Latin Flavor
The Sheridan Arts Foundation presents its winter fundraiser: A Taste of Latin Flavor! This evening of food, drink and entertainment features Spanish tapas, Latin American wines, traditional music and a live Tango performance by Sidney Grant and his partner Gayle Madeira, professional dancers from New York City. Sidney is the Artistic Director at Ballroom Basix, a Harlem based dance academy and program for kids. He has enjoyed a ballroom and latin dance career spanning over two decades of dedication to the art of social dancing, specializing in the Argentine Tango. He captured the Novice Professional title at the Fred Astaire Championships in Atlantic City in 1990, and recently won the 2011 USA Tango Championship. Teaching young and old alike in a variety of settings (studios, schools and senior centers, as well as corporate and private events) Sid is in constant demand for his unique instruction and creative performances. His passion for partner dancing has enabled him to build a worldwide clientele. The Taste of Latin Flavor evening will unfold with a complimentary glass of Sangria upon arrival, as well as a beautiful spread of homemade, gourmet tapas prepared by chef Mary Gallagher. (A cash bar with Latin wines and cocktails will be open all evening.) After eating, mingling and watching the Tango performance we will open the dance floor up to all. A DJ will play a variety of music, including Salsa, Merengue, Flamenco and modern Latin rhythms. This night of fabulous food and entertainment is sure to please all families and couples that enjoy a festive, good time! Join us from 7 - 10pm on Friday, March 16th! Tickets are $50 a head for GA Standing room or $75 a head for Reserved Seats at cocktail rounds (limited). Support the SAF while doing something fun and festive!
