Contrary to the popular western cultural image of Argentine tango as an intense and fiery engagement between a man and woman (including the red rose between the teeth!) the reality is that Argentine tango is quite an accessible and easy dance to learn. Tango evolved to become a popular Buenos Aires street dance - a simple way for normal people to express themselves and have fun socially.
There are actually distinct types of tango that are danced around the world today. These styles are a legacy of a dance whose origins go back to the turn of the previous century. There is a style to suit the level, character and ambition of anyone. See performances that show-case some of the various styles.
