What is Tango?

Key features of Tango include an intense connection between dance partners, intricate footwork, and the expression of deep emotions through movement. Tango is known for its distinctive walking style, referred to as the “caminata,” and its embrace, which can range from close and intimate to more open and dynamic.

History of Tango

The dance’s history is rooted in the multicultural melting pot of Buenos Aires, where European, African, and indigenous influences converged. Tango emerged as a form of expression for the working-class immigrants in the city, providing an outlet for their joys, sorrows, and struggles. Tango gained popularity in the early 20th century and eventually spread to Europe and the rest of the world, captivating dancers and audiences with its sensual and dramatic appeal. It became a fashionable dance in Paris and other European cities, undergoing further evolution and blending with local dance styles.
