What is the history of Tango?

Tango originated in the late 19th century in Buenos Aires, Argentina, blending African, European, and Indigenous influences. Initially controversial for its sensuality, it gained popularity in dance halls. The 1930s-1950s were its “Golden Age,” with orchestras like D’Arienzo and Troilo shaping its music. Tango spread internationally, then declined in Argentina but saw a revival in the 1980s, led by musicians like Astor Piazzolla. Today, it remains an integral part of Argentine culture and a celebrated dance worldwide. Are you interested in Tango? If so, you can press the following link to find the schedule for our lessons.
