A series of men are lured to their destruction when they engage in a steamy tango with a seductive dance partner. With a lush musical score, Jazz Age costumes, and visually striking cinematography, this evocative short film uses the tango as a metaphor for life’s tempting interruptions. Featuring original choreography by Dani Rowe performed by principal dancers Sasha De Sola and Luke Ingham from the San Francisco Ballet.

The dance film “Siren’s Tango” won the viewers’ hearts Friday night, although not the big awards.
“That was a beautiful film to end the night,” Beurois said on Friday.
Many in the audience loved the film, which doesn’t have words, only music and dance. After the screening they talked about the details.
“It was my absolute favorite film,” said Yucca Valley resident Kathy French, who came to the festival with friend Cain Motter.
