Argentine Tango Performance
Argentine Tango is a social dance and musical genre that originated in Argentina and spread to the rest of the world. It consists of a variety of styles that developed in different regions and eras, and in response to the crowding of the venue and even the fashions in clothing. Argentine Tango is danced in an embrace that can vary from very open to very closed or anywhere in between. Tango is essentially walking with a partner and the music. Argentine Tango relies heavily on improvisation; although certain patterns of movement have been codified by instructors over the years, there is no "basic step".
