Gonzalo Cabrera y Roxanna Suarez UCP Women Who Care Luncheon May 4 2006

Introduction given at Women Who Care Luncheon:
We have a very special treat for you today. We are pleased to introduce, a young dancer who happens to have cerebral palsy and one whose disability has not prevented him from striving to reach for the stars. Here, direct from Argentina is Gonzalo Cabrera and his cousin and dance partner Roxana Andrea Suarez to perform a traditional tango to the song Catamarca! (orchesta: di Sarli)

Loreen and I want to thank all of you in the NYC milongas for the warm welcome you gave to Gonzalo Cabrera y Roxanna Suarez. They danced a beautiful tango to open the United Cerebral Palsy's Women Who Care Luncheon at Cipriani and they were thrilled to be invited to perform exhibitions at the milongas every night of the week they were visiting here. Special thanks to Gayatri Martin of La Boca, Hernan of Tango Club, Coco y Juan Pablo of La Nacional, Dani Carpi of La Belle Epoque, Sandra of Lafayette Grill, and Jak and Metin of Baila Tango y DJ La Turca. For those of you who missed these wonderful kids, Gonzalo is sixteen years old and happens to have cerebral palsy, although you wouldn't know it when he dances tango. He and his cousin Roxy were an inspiration to us all! The GREATEST GRACIAS to Tanguero Productions for introducing these amazing dancers to the NY tango community!
