Tango Flash Mob to Dance in Hermosa

Armed with a portable amp and music list on her iPod, an area woman and her tango dancing friends will stage impromptu dances near the pier.

Ilona Glinarsky has seen what dancing can do for a body, not to mention soul.

The El Segundo-based dance instructor so much loves what dancing can do for others that she has taken to staging public tango dances flash-mob style in Hermosa Beach.

Her next one is Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. near the HB Pier.

"Social dance is for anyone and everyone, regardless of their background, origins, social status or anything else that might make us think we are different," said Glinarsky.

On Friday, she will be joined by dancers from Tango San Pedro and all over Los Angeles to demonstrate her love of the dance she says can change lives.

"I believe social partner dance is a powerful tool for positive change, personal growth and transformation. Dance saved me and turned my life around at the hardest moment of my life; it has done the same for countless people."

She tells the story of a dear friend who had a leg amputated due to cancer and still fulfilled her dream to dance, learning to dance the tango.

"Tango music is so lovely and unintrusive, and the dancing is so lovely and mesmerizing," said Glinarsky, who will offer quick lessons Friday and hand out flyers for a free class on Sept. 9 near Los Angeles International Airport.
