What is Argentine Tango?
Argentine Tango Dance Classes: As the name suggests Argentine Tango originated in Argentina. It was mainly danced by the middle class society in the suburbs of Buenos Aires.
Argentine Tango has 3 different variants Tango Salon, Vals & Milonga. The music is very different for each of the variants. The Tango Salon is slow paced having sorrowful separation or love music whereas the others have faster paced tempo.
It was much later accepted by the upper class in Europe as a dance meant for stage performance and it continued to gain world recognition. Tango is danced in Closed Embrace where the connection or the embrace between the partners become the main essence.
This dance is a meditative dance form where through good lead and follow the woman can dance best with her eyes closed. The man leads the woman in various linear walking movements either in a straight line or a circular pattern from his torso whereas the lady follows first with her upper body to match his torso and legs being a little more delayed creating tangles, kicks and various styling interpretations to the music.
