Tango: A History
The Tango began in the West Indies and found its way to Argentina where it was stylized by the Gauchos. It became the rage in the 1921 after the silent screen star Rudolph Valentino brought this romantic dance to millions in “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”. More recently, it has been danced in movies such as True Lies and Scent of a Woman. Today, the Tango is considered the “dancer’s dance” and becomes a favourite to all who learn it. Ranging from traditional to modern styles, it does not compromise on its need to have flare, attitude and playfulness between the two partners. Very much a collaborative style of dance, you also learn things like trust, improvisation, harmony, sensitivity and team work – all vital parts of this style of dance.
