Argentine tango is one of the most beautiful, elegant, and sensual dances of modern times.
It expresses the many facets of life and is centered in a subtle communication between leader and follower. The dance opens for the opportunity to explore and develop aspects of oneself; to say yes to a dance is like stepping into a micro cosmos with ample possibility to explore masculine and feminine sides, strength, body awareness and communication between the dance partners.
It s the only dance, alongside with Flamenco, which is a UNESCO Word Heritage.
It is a timeless art that continues to evolve even today, that has its roots in the working class city dance halls of the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Its most distinctive features are a very close and intimate embrace that establishes a deep connection between the two partners and the sensual movements and figures that made it so famous.
Discover this incredible art with our courses! But be careful...you won´t be able to get rid of it!
