The Powerful and Dramatic Tango

Tango began in Argentina in the 1890s, and later travelled its way to the rest of the world. Most believe, the well-known Rudolph Valentino’s production “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” brought this passionate dance to life. Tango remains a unique Ballroom dance with staccato footwork, and fluid, graceful movements. Tango is a much sought after dance style, developing precise leading and following skills.

Characteristics

Tango is a passionate and bold dance form that has a dramatic and sensual tone. Its unique, sharp footwork and attractive dance frame are some of the Tango’s highlights. Tango songs can be written in 2/4 or 4/4 timing, and the dance is counted using slow and quick steps.
