Happy Nomads - Argentine Tango

Tango originated in the "Rio de la Plata" one of the poor quarters of Buenos Aires (Argentina) at the turn of the last century, and born within the immigrant and lower class communities in this area. Those who lived there, peasants from inland, European immigrants and some disadvantaged porteņos (born in Buenos Aires) made up a new social class. Perhaps as a way of identifying themselves as a group and of feeling they belonged in their new home, they began to create cultural expressions derived from this mixture. This was the start of tango, characterized by its extremely closed codes, which were only accessible to the working classes.  What started with dance was eventually coming of age in the expert hands of great men, who, inspired in the popular melting pot, captured the richest part of the Buenos Aires culture in their compositions.

During the next few decades tango spread throughout South American society and then throughout the world.

TANGO, the dance, is a conversation between two people. You, and a dance partner, can express musical moods through improvised movements. You can dance simple tango after one lesson, but spend a lifetime developing your own dancing. Tango communities exist in most countries of the world, and more are being born all the time.
