They are by the beach at Rye Town Park, planning for the "Tango By The Beach" classes that will be held weekly on Thursdays, from 7 to 9:30 pm, weather permitting, starting on May 24, 2012. The fee is $10 per session. The lessons will be held in the area by the lifeguard station.)
Doornick, a resident of Rye Beach Avenue, is the founder of Animal Nation, a Westchester based animal sanctuary and rescue group. She maintains an emergency rescue hot-line and the group's web site has instructions on what to do if you find various injured critters.
She is also a tango teacher. The public is being invited to learn and enjoy Argentine Tango dancing by the beach (Tangoplaya) on Thursday evenings at Rye Town Park. They can experience “a taste of Buenos Aires” from 7 to 9:30 pm by the lifeguard station for the modest sum of $10 per session.
The sessions will begin on May 24, 2012 and run weekly through September 6th, weather permitting. Dress is casual — smooth soled sneakers would work best on the sandy/fine gravel surface which is the designated dance “floor”. The $10 weekly fee covers the cost of an hour lesson from 7-8 pm. Participants can join in practice and dancing until 9:30 p.m. People can come alone or with friend(s).
No word if there will be any dancing animals joining in.
