TANGO JEST…

A  fantasy festival/jestival where very little is sacred and

pretty much everything is considered fodder for

poking gentle fun at our

flaws and faux pas.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Welcome to TANGO JEST

where rumors are repeated until they are accepted as fact.

 You were invited because someone mentioned you in one or more of these hot topics.  

When you arrive at a festival,

YOU SHOP FOR SHOES

BEFORE YOU CHANGE YOUR SHOES.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 You’ve danced with partners  who seem to be stuck in 

ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You’ve shared a few  

KRAMER VS KRAMER MOMENTS

Over which foot goes where

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You’ve been nearly suffocated by the

 SCENT OF A WOMAN.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 You’ve been led in 

MALEFICENT MOLINETES

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You know how to look cool when you’re having a  

HOT FLASH.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You’ve danced at  

BURNING TANGO AND BURNING MAN.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You turned a senior moment into a great variation last night

BUT CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Your life is arranged in two categories: 

TANGO….AND MISCELLANEOUS.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Your family is the only one in the area who knows

WHAT A MILONGA IS.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When friends send you videos, you debate which to watch first: 

TANGO OR CATS SLEEPING IN WEIRD PLACES.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You get annoyed when someone in class is over their head and

SLOWS YOU DOWN.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You have NEVER taken a class

THAT WAS OVER YOUR HEAD.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And you qualify for one of our skill levels:  

KNOW NOTHING

KNOW A LITTLE

ADVANCED

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you believe that none of these is true,

YOU ARE IN DENIAL OR SHOULD BE STUDIED.

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ENJOY THE JESTIVAL.
