DESCRIPTION

The experience starts in Selina from where we will go to the famous Carrera 45 in Manrique neighborhood, better known as "Avenida Carlos Gardel". The start point would be the Statue of Gardel, the most popular tango singer in history who died in a flight accident in Medellin 1935 and then we will visit “La Casa Gardeliana”, this beautiful house, full of Gardel´s life reminiscences, has been the most iconic place for tango lovers in the city.

After visiting it and sharing stories with the keeper, we move uphill to the easternmost zone of the neighborhood. Here we will be learning about one of the most outstanding projects of transformation in the city, "El Balcón de los Artistas", it´s worldwide known that Medellin went through very dark years in the 80´s and 90´s. In 1992, Ms. Martha Álvarez, professional dancer born in Manrique, decided to found “El Balcón de los Artistas” (The Artists´ Balcony), a dance academy that made every effort to take the youth off the streets and offer them an alternative to violence and activities around it. Almost 30 years later, they've trained more than 14.000 dancers, many of them working for prestigious dance companies abroad. They´ve also won several awards in international contests, and even Marc Anthony came to visit them when he was in Medellin.

We will be sharing with the artists, learning about their process and seeing them perform their rehearsal, and will as well have the chance to get a dance lesson from different rhythms like tango, salsa and flow, while enjoying a magnificent view of the city.

Afterwards, we go back to 45th street and visit Café Alaska, another very popular tango bar decorated with memorabilia of the musical gender that has been the background sound of the neighborhood for years, where we will be tasting their popular coffee with a secret ingredient.
