New to Argentine tango?
Many people in Australia associate tango with ballroom dancing or Hollywood movies portraying couples dancing with a rose between their teeth. In reality, the tango as social dance works as a beautiful way of connecting to another person through the music, where communication and musicality is honoured above all else. It is about two people moving as one entity through the common medium of music, of which there is incredible diversity and quality rarely found in any other dance music.
The basic movement in tango is walking - simply walking around the room to music with a partner. The interesting thing is that to make this work, the two bodies need to communicate with each other without words. Then we play with the rhythm and the connection, and add some beautiful variations in the movements - we have a dance that is dynamic, intimate and beautiful.
