The Origins of Tango
The Tango is originally from the Caribbean, but it is the “Gauchos” of Argentina that gave it the style we know today. It became a true romantic passion for many in 1921 when the famous Rudolf Valentino introduced it to millions of spectators in the film “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”. Today, many consider the Tango as their favorite dance.
How to Dance Tango
The posture of Tango is more compact than in other ballroom dances. Tango walking differs from other dance steps, because it uses a staccato movement, which is obtained by delaying the movement that brings the feet together.
Tango music is usually written in 2/4 or 4/4 timing. The first rhythm that is used to teach Tango is slow, slow, quick, quick, slow.
