Argentinean Tango is a partnered social dance. There are various styles of tango, but they all share the key unique features of embrace, connection and musicality.
Born out of the need to be close against your partner, the embrace is not a hold, it’s a hug.
The embrace creates the unique dynamic and posture of Tango dancing, and it allows the entire “Four legs, two bodies and one heart” philosophy of the dance, allowing the couple to move together as one.
The wonderful connection between two people allows communication and awareness of each other. In Tango, we connect with ourselves, with our partners and with the music.
The steps in tango are all improvised; there are no patterns to memorize, there are no sequences to follow. Each step, and each movement, are led and followed continuously, to allow maximum communication and interpretation of the music.
