I live in Boise, Idaho and we have what I would classify a very small tango scene. There is only one instructor in town who teaches tango one night a week (usually pretty dead), and a tango club who holds a practica another weeknight where anywhere from 10 to 20 people come to dance. They're passionate about tango, but never seem to attract any newcomers. To grow the scene, I first tried to get my instructor and the tango club to work together, but they have different views on how things should be, and that fell through. I was talking with my instructor and he suggested that perhaps I create another tango weekly event (beginner lesson followed by practica) at a venue separate from his studio and the tango club's stuff, since I'm so interested in growing the scene. I have a venue lined up for a Sunday night, and I'm confident I could teach a simple beginner lesson (been dancing about six months). But, I've never done something like this before and I'm afraid no one will come. After trying and failing to get my friends into tango and running a facebook group specifically for tango, I'm aware at how difficult it is here to get people interested. Does anyone have any suggestions for promoting an event like this, or suggestions for growing the scene in general?
