The Tango was stylized by the Gauchos of Argentina
where they danced it circling the bar tables after a
hard day’s work. It became the rage in 1921 after
Rudolph Valentino brought its romance and allure to
the silent screen in “The Four Horsemen of the
Apocalypse”. Its passion and excitement has most
recently been captured in movies such as True Lies,
Scent of a Woman and Shall We Dance? The Tango is
known as one of the most powerful and dramatic
dances, characterized by staccato movements, dips
and gancho flicks. It’s commonly referred to as the
“dancer’s dance” where the men get to be men and the
women love it! Creating amazing leading and
following skills, it’s truly a favorite for all that learn it.
