SARATOGA SPRINGS — Proctors new Collaborative Studio, and Tango Fusion Dance Company of Saratoga have worked together on a new dance show that will be broadcast on Thursday nights. 

Tango Fusion Ballroom Dance Show will feature eight episodes at 7 p.m. on Thursday nights through the months of April and May. 

The eight-part series starts with four beginner Salsa Lessons and will be followed by four beginner Swing Lessons.  Each week, Tango Fusion instructors Diane Lachtrupp Martinez and Johnny Martinez will lead a warm-up, review what was taught the week before and add on new steps and techniques. The program will also include some improvisational social dancing as well as a featured fun fact of the day about the dance. 

Viewers do not need to have a partner or experience.  The series would also be a good review for dancers who have danced Salsa and Swing before.  The series is free to viewers but there is an opportunity to donate to the project.

In addition to the lead instructors, Johnny and Diane, the show features additional professional instructors Juan Soler and Jen Cornell, as well as two college students Lucas Martinez and Alanah Cohen-Tigor. 

The goal of the show is to provide entertaining, quality instruction to a new audience of dancers of all ages.

The series will broadcast on the following platforms: Spectrum Cable Channel 1302, Verizon Fios Channel 37, Any Smart TV (just download the Collaborative Studios App), and Youtube: www.youtube.com/channel/UC-2mrbG7kelNj3XOG-ltC9A. 

Diane Lachtrupp Martinez and Johnny Martinez are award-winning Tango, Salsa and Swing dancers. They are co-directors of Tango Fusion Dance Studio in Saratoga that offers group classes and private lessons to both adults and children. They have worked with area organizations such as Capitol Repertory Theater, Park Playhouse, Opera Saratoga, Proctors, UPH, Charles Wood, HMT, SLOC, Fort Salem Theater, Nacre Dance Company and the National Museum of Dance.
