As in jazz or rock & roll, it is born of the plurality of rhythms brought to America by different ethnical groups.

The spirit of its music combines metrics, accents, intentions, rhythms and melodies with the verses of the poems being singed.

It is basically ruled by a binary compass of 4/8 . Different from other musical arts that are improvised, the Tango is always previously composed and executed with a previous harmony.

The Tango is a dance of intertwined couples, originally not necessarily a man and a woman, for it was also danced among men only.

The most known steps are: el corte, la quebrada, la tijera, la refilada, la sentada, el voleo.
The city offers a wide variety of possibilities for those willing to approach tango. The options depend on the type of activity you want to try.

Taking into consideration the multiple faces that compose it, you can watch a dance show, listen to a concert, take lessons and if you dare , even dance in a club or milonga where many Argentineans “la sacan viruta al piso”

The “Tango Show” consists of a choreography previously rehearsed for the show presentation, while the Tango dancing performed at the local clubs is practiced at a social level without age or social distinctions.

These places are not planned for tourists, but if you really want a taste of the Tango essence, this is were you should go.
