The Sensual and Melodic Argentine Tango

The Argentine Tango developed in the late 19th century in Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Montevideo, Uruguay. It was a dance practiced and adored by Uruguayan and Argentine dancers, musicians, and immigrant labourers alike. This affectionate dance quickly spread across the globe. The Argentine Tango resembles the Ballroom Tango in many ways, but the music of Argentine Tango is more spontaneous, and of wide variety. There are many different styles of music to suit Argentine Tango, which makes it easy for dancers to spend the night dancing only Argentine tango.


It is said that passionate Argentine Tango dancers follow the rhythm of their heart. Many refer to Argentine Tango as a Latin dance because it is danced more on the balls of your feet, and is not required to follow a line of dance, as in Ballroom dances. The Music is organically arranged, and follows a 4/4 time. While learning how to Argentine Tango, dancers may learn to count patterns using slow and quick steps.
