Dance As Fire

ARGENTINE TANGO

– ARGENTINE STYLE –

The word “Tango” originates from an African percussion instrument: the “tambor” (drum). Of mestizo origin, Tango was born around 1880 in the capitals Buenos Aires and Montevideo and was then exported to Europe at the beginning of the century. Tango immediately achieves a huge success, but it also makes the scandal cry because it is considered a sinful dance. In the beginning it was considered a normal practice to dance man with man (and also woman with woman): it was done to experiment with movements, commands and directions.

MOVEMENT CHARACTERISTIC

Very frequent speed changes, very sensual movements in which the lower part of the body takes over the upper part, which is close to the partner.

MUSICAL TIME

The music of Argentine Tango is written in 2/4 or 4/4. Famous musicians like Carlos Gardel, Astror Piazzolla and lately also Galliano have made this music genre famous.
