What is Argentine Tango?

Argentine tango is a partner dance that sprang up spontaneously from the immigrant population of Buenos Aires in the late 19th century.

What defines Argentine tango is the music and the passion.  Without the music there is no Argentine tango.  Without the passion, the dance is not Argentine tango.

The music is a distinct mixture of rhythm, melancholy and passion. Argentine tango music stirs up all the feelings your have inside your soul.

The dance is an expression of these deep feelings.
