The History of The Tango
The tango is thought to have begun in Argentina and Uruguay in the late 1800s. This underground dance style was a favorite among those wishing to express themselves to music when words would just not suffice. The tango spread to London, Paris, and America during the roaring 20’s.
When people think of the tango they often think of a woman dressed in a tight dress, holding a rose in her mouth, eyeing her lover from across the dance floor. This dance is often performed at 3/4 or 4/4 time, in a slightly open embrace. More competitive styles of the tango involve intricate footwork and gymnastic style leg kicks and partner moves.
Getting Ready for Your First Tango Dance Lessons
Some people are intimidated by the tango as it is a dance often thought of as high level. Anyone can tango. All you need to do is show up to class wearing something you can move in, with some water for when you break a sweat. Let the instructors know of any dance experience you have had and any injuries you may currently be working to mend and they will be in charge of the rest. As we like to say at Arthur Murray, walk in and tango out.
