Why do we do this?

Because we can and the weather will permit it.  
Tango dancers dance anywhere and
everywhere.  This is fun.

What do I wear?

It can get breezy.  Bring a light jacket.  
Dancing will usually keep you warmed up!

Can I just come & watch?

Yes!  You don't have to know how to Tango to
be on the bridge and watch the moon rise and
the dancers.  It's a wonderful sight.

Will there be music?


Are there going to be bicylists on
the bridge?

Yes!  We will be considerate and move to the
sides of the bridge to let the bicyles pass
through the middle.  If you hear "incoming" or
"bicycle" move immediately to the sides.

Do I need special shoes?

No...however, remember concrete grabs your
feet and will not allow you to pivot EASILY!  
Even if you are wearing leather soled shoes.  
So be aware of limiting your pivots (ochos,
turns, boleos, etc...) and get creative with
linear moments (rock steps, rocking turns,
linear ochos, etc..)
How did this event get started?
How old is this event?

I use to live in Boston, MA.  The tango
community there dances on one of the
bridges over the Charles River.  Always
wanted to do that.  I use to do public
performances on the streets in Boston.
Put it all together and you have Hit &
Run Tango which lead to Full Moon
Tango.  I just want to have fun and
dance tango as often and in as many
places as we can.  Our first event was
in 2003.

Wow...quite the evening on the bridge, here's some of the highlights that happened during the
60 minutes we were on the bridge last night...

1.  Woman taking her cat for a walk.

2.  Large fireworks downriver.

3.  Guy drinking beer (obviously not the first one) watching the dancers and asking, "Who was
the guy in that movie Last Tango In Paris?"

4.  Warm wonderful strong breezes caressing our skin.

5.  Bicycles threading their way through the center of our dancing.

6.  Two Eugene Police cars with flashing lights crossing the bridge in pursuit of something.
Somebody had called out "car!" instead of bike and we thought it was a joke.
Thanks to everyone who was there...it was fun.
