Ready to Tango?

From October 15 to 17, Iñaki Urlezaga’s dance company, Ballet Concierto, will perform a program of tango and classical dance at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center. (The video above is a taste of the company’s work.) And this Sunday, from noon to 2 p.m., at the Battery Park City Block Party—on the Esplanade, where the volleyball courts are—TPAC will offer free tango lessons for all ages.

What’s more, TPAC and Tribeca Citizen are partnering for an exclusive contest. We’ll be asking one tango-related trivia question a week for four weeks, at the end of which we’ll draw two names from the pool of everyone who has guessed correctly. The grand prize is dinner for two at Tribeca’s own Industria Argentina—up to $150 on food and a bottle of wine of the restaurant’s choosing!—along with two tickets to the Ballet Concierto show; the runner-up prize is two tickets to the show, which ain’t too shabby.

All you have to do is answer this question correctly in the comments:

a) Porteños
b) Airistas
c) Marineros
