IPS Theodore Potter Spanish Immersion School Demonstration

June 1, 2017

BATO presented Argentine Tango to two classes at Indianapolis Public Schools' Theodore Potter Spanish Immersion School, sharing with the students how it was through combining elements of multiple cultures that tango came to be.

***Thank you to Ms. Torres and her students for the fun and engaging opportunity to share Argentine Tango and its rich history.***

 

Testimonial: I am very happy you both made it to our school. Theodore Potter is a Spanish Immersion school and I love to give students the opportunity to have different experiences not only with what we learn in the classroom, but also from other people and places around Indiana and other Latino countries they don't know. Thank you for coming and taking the time to share your knowledge with us. -Magali Torres
