Our Tango Dancers



The sensuality underlying all choreographic patters combines in a vivid tribute to tango.

Tango Show in Buenos Aires

Throughout the tango show guests will understand the history of tango from its beginnings to the present. The proposal also perfectly combines classical dance stage and ballroom tango.

The five pairs of dancers on stage every night dazzle with classic performances and modern interpretations of acrobatic tango, under the care and direction of Dolores de Amo.

The magnificent costumes accompanied the various proposals in an exquisite way.



HISTORY OF TANGO

Early tango was known as tango criollo. Today, there are different types of tango dance such as Argentine tango or Uruguayan. Popularly and among tango dancing circles, the authentic tango is considered to be the one which is closest to that originally danced in Argentina and Uruguay.

Tango is a dance that has influences from European and African culture. Dances from the candombe ceremonies of former slave peoples helped shape the modern day Tango. The dance originated in lower-class districts of Buenos Aires and Montevideo. The music derived from the fusion of various forms of music from Europe.

The word "tango" seems to have first been used in connection with the dance in the 1890s. Initially it was just one of the many dances, but it soon became popular throughout society, as theatres and street barrel organs spread it from the suburbs to the working-class slums, which were packed with hundreds of thousands of European immigrants, primarily Italians, Spanish and French.
