Tango Dance

TANGO

Argentine Tango is among the most beautiful dance forms in history, and possibly the most passionate. The history, from its humble beginnings to its latest developments, is part of the grand history of Buenos Aires. The dance has a rich history that spans several lifetimes, and has infatuated more than its fair share of avid disciples.

It is a partner dance that developed over the last century in Argentina’s capital city, Buenos Aires. It is very different from the Tango in International and American ballroom dancing. It is an interpretive, improvisational social dance that allows the dancers to develop a deep connection between themselves, the music, and the environment in which they are dancing.

There are several styles of Argentine Tango and different types danced at milongas or social dances (Note: Milonga is both – a social dance, and a type of Tango dancing). In addition, modern forms such as Tango Nuevo and Neo-Tango have also emerged and are fast becoming popular in dance cafes and halls around the world.
