Hey guys, thank you so much for checking out our project. Once Upon a Tango (Quaran-Tango edition) is our passion project, and we would love more than anything to be able to present it this year in The Hollywood Fringe Festival! (AUGUST, 2021) This would be an opportunity for us to really grow our audiences and win some awesome awards to take our show to the next level! Given that participating in the show is for the love of the arts and that the proceeds will be split between the artists (our 10 person cast) and the Festival's non-profit organization, we really need your help to make our participation possible! It's been a challenging year for the arts, but with your help, we can make this happen. Below are the base costs of the production. Any small contribution makes a huge difference and is greatly appreciated. Help us keep the arts alive, and read all about our show below. This Edition of the show is going to include heart felt interpretation of the past year's obstacles and we hope you can be a part of it as we move forward with new perspectives and dreams.
P.S. If it happens that in August theatres are not ready to be at full capacity, the show will still be on! In that case we will get together a professional team to live stream the shows.

ABOUT THE SHOW
GD TANGO Presents Once Upon a Tango
Critically acclaimed Tango group
You’ll be dancing in your seats when Once Upon a Tango Quaran-Tango an enchanting original tale, told entirely through the dance of Argentine tango hits the stage. Based on real people and events the audience can enjoy the journey of a young woman and a quirky man who, in discovering tango, find each other, and the passion they have been longing for comes to life. This is Argentine tango in its traditional form used creatively via this passionate fairytale of emotions as theatre and dance come together for a magical experience. This show has made appearances all over CA, including Santa Barabara, San Diego, and now its back in LA! Critics say it is "a uniquely delightful show, with expert tango performances.”
Real characters and real settings are pulled from the tango community of Los Angeles and are the genesis of this production. It was in fact five years ago when Dan and De Fazio met at The Tango Room – a real place. They had danced the tango all their lives and their connection was palpable. Dan mentioned, “Argentine tango is the traditional social dance of the country. It’s the ultimate social outlet and brings the whole community together.” Even the real teachers of the dance studio where the protagonists are learning to tango are in the production. The same goes for all the characters in Once Upon a Tango who in real life are professional dancers, as well as social dancers, performers, and event organizers. It’s real, it’s authentic, it’s hot, it’s a great night out.
As for the protagonists, their story of meeting and falling in love through this passionate dance, are a combination of classic tango love stories. The creators of the show chose to develop it this way to show audiences the traditional context of Argentine Tango dance, and inspire people of all ages to learn to tango. De Fazio who has worked with Mikhail Baryshnikov and Placido Domingo knows the power of the stage, “People can come together transform fears to courage, to love. We put the audience (and he gestures to his breast pocket) next to our hearts.” All this magic comes by way of the tango. Giovanna added, “Tango is a unique sensation, the connection causes a chemical reaction.”
Once Upon a Tango is devised by Guillermo De Fazio and Giovanna Dan
