About Tango
Argentine Tango is a dance of grace and complexity that moves with changing rhythms and intensity. The original passionate dance derived from the heart of Buenos Aires.

For social Tango the dance moves around the floor in an anti-clockwise direction. Depending on the amount of space available Tango can be stepped out to move around a large floor area or adapted to dance in a small crowded space.

The music changes from slow to fast throughout one song and has a distinctive sound due to the type of instruments commonly used such as the bandoneon, violin, double bass and piano.

A lot of the core movements in tango come from walking and isolating the shoulders from the hips to maintain a strong connection with your partner as you dance. While Tango is based on some simple concepts and steps, it also has a hidden complexity that continues to challenge the dancer.

Tango encompasses a wide range of tango styles that have developed over the years along with the music and culture of Buenos Aires.
