Darcy Hackley and Timothy Raben perform for All Together Now #6 on August 19, 2017 at the Burren.
Darcy Hackley started dancing tango in 2009, while she was working as an archaeologist in Cairo, Egypt. She brings fifteen years of classical ballet and movement training to her dance, as well as a love of tango music. She has danced, taught, and organized tango events in Europe, the Middle East, and North America. Currently based in Providence, Rhode Island, Darcy is a tango organizer as well as a doctoral candidate in Near Eastern Archaeology.
Timothy Raben first explored Argentine tango one dreary evening in New England while suffering from the pangs of boredom. The unique mix of music, movement, and human connection sparked a new love. Pretty soon you couldn’t keep him from the dance floor: learning, practicing, and exploring tango. After many years in New England, dancing all over North and South America, Timothy relocated to Kansas where he now lives, researches particle physics , and teaches tango.
“Collaboration between different genres is how art evolves and grows. It’s how to push boundaries and keep things novel.” -Tim Raben
“Dance is one of the most collaborative forms of expression– the fun is in responding in real time to your partner and to the music and to everyone around you.” -Darcy Hackley
