From 2017-2018, I toured all across the US with Karen Jaffe. We covered a total of 25,000 miles, re-uniting with old friends and making new friends, which is the best gift of this profession.

It was an arduous job with very rewarding results in each of the communities we visited. We have learned a lot together, and we are really happy for the opportunity. Thanks to each and every one of you for your support, for having contributed in one way or another to make the 2017-2018 tour possible. From the organizers in each community and city, as well as all those people who so kindly opened the doors of their homes to host us, and of course all our dear students who taught us so much - to all of you, infinite thanks!

Karen and I are looking towards the future. We want to continue our work in a more sustainable way because, despite having been an incredible experience, we also understand that it is too long a time to be away from our loved ones, families and homes. This time, we are asking you, our friends, to help sponsor my expenses to return to the US in 2019.

As you all know I am Argentinian, that is to say that I live in Argentina, and every time we plan a similar tour there are several things that I have to pay for.

The 2 largest expenses are:
1. Flights from Argentina to the USA, which are between $1,300 and $1,700 USD
2. All the paperwork, filing fees and taxes of the “P3” work visa, also including the US lawyer’s fee, which costs approximately $3,500 USD

Our goal is to raise $5,000 USD to help cover these costs, and to achieve our objective of working at a more sustainable pace, where we can find more of a balance of work, home and family.

For this tour, ideally, I’d like to be able to go back and forth and actually travel a total of approximately 6 months. If we can raise the money for the visa and initial flight, that would be a huge support! It is that initial amount that is the heaviest thing for me. Reaching this fundraising goal would ease my stress and help me to be able to afford the remaining flights for the year.

For my prior visits, Karen has generously paid for the visa and flight up front. Then, after months of work, I manage to raise what is necessary to pay off my debt to her. Only then do I begin to make a profit from my work. My hope is that with this fundraiser, Karen and I can spend more time collaborating to bring tango to your community, and less time worrying about making ends meet financially.

In return for your generosity, I am offering special gifts!
*For donations of $100: I'll send you my "10 Best Tango Tips", a special document I've created just for you, my tanguero friends!
*For donations of $250: You'll be invited to a live group Q&A session with me! I'll set these dates as we reach our goal, and I'll offer multiple times for you to join. (You'll also receive the $100 donation gift.)
*For donations of $500: I'll offer you a private 1-hour virtual session with me! You can ask me all your tango questions, and I'll give you personal advice about how to improve your dance. (You'll also receive the $250 and $100 donation gifts.)
*For donations of $1000 - I'll give you a private 1-hour in-person session, or two 1-hour virtual sessions if we can't meet in person, so you can spend even more time with me. (You'll also receive all of the other gifts.)

We have heard from most of the communities we visited that you would like to have us visit again. We would also like that!  We are asking for your financial support to help make this happen.  We are grateful for whatever you can donate. Everything helps.

I really think that if we all collaborate, the new tour will be possible. We still have a lot to share, a lot to offer and learn. I hope to see you soon!

Love for all, and live the Tango!!!!
