Argentine Tango

The dance of Argentine Tango developed in the working class neighborhoods of Buenos Aires in the late 19th century. It wasn’t until the 1910s that tango started to become fashionable in Europe, but it was largely banned from upper class gatherings where ballroom dances such as the Viennese waltz were popular.
Tango is danced in an embrace that can range from very open to very closed; where the dancers are connected chest to chest. While there are certain patterns of movement, tango is largely an improvisational dance that is led in direction, speed, and quality of movement in relation to the music.

Tango Basics

  • Basics covers the very basic Tango vocabulary and introduction to the Tango embrace to get you dancing and excited to learn more. If you’ve ever wanted to learn Argentine Tango, this is the place to start!

Continuing Tango

  • Continuing moves beyond the basics to explore additional Tango footwork and musicality. Dancers must have taken the Basics class or equivalent tango series. Dancers should be comfortable with walking, ochos, and molinete in open embrace.
