Dance can express what words cannot, whether it's the triumphant joy in a football player's post-touchdown pirouette or the passionate tango used to notify roommates that the basement is flooding. Watch twinkling toes transmit tidings thanks to today’s Groupon: for $28, you get two tickets to Tango Fire at The Egg (up to a $56 value), which takes place at 8 p.m. February 4 in The Egg's Kitty Carlisle Hart Theatre in the Empire State Plaza downtown. A hotbed of performances and cultural events incubate at The Egg, an eye-opening ovular building hosting two intimate theaters. Hailing from Buenos Aires, the Tango Fire Company's revue explores the history of the dance from its red-light district origins to its current incarnation as the military's least crackable method of communication. Ten intense tangoristas, a quartet of gifted musicians, and a sensational Argentinean singer ignite the ambitious program.
- I love this venue. You feel so up close and personal with the performers. I saw a ballet there a couple years back and it was the best experience at a venue I have had yet. – Tiffany N., Yelp
- The upscale performance space for high art, dance, concerts, etc. Combined with Pepsi Arena it gives Albany something to say in terms of large scale entertainment. – Vicot L., Yelp
