Argentine Tango

Argentine Tango is a partner dance that developed over the last century in Argentina’s capital city, Buenos Aires. It is very different from the Tango in International and American ballroom dancing. Argentine Tango is an interpretive, improvisational social dance that allows the dancers to develop a deep connection between themselves, the music, and the environment in which they are dancing.

There are several styles of Argentine Tango, some of which are described below, and different types of Tango danced at milongas or social dances (Milonga is both – a social dance, and a type of Tango dancing). In addition, modern forms of Tango such as Tango Nuevo and Neo-Tango have also emerged and are fast becoming popular in dance cafes and halls around the world.

At Dance Center Chicago we offer a full Tango experience. Hosting classes, Practicas (guided practice) and Milongas (social party). We host Milongas almost every Saturday night put on by a variety of people within the Chicago Tango Community. See our Schedule of events and Calendar to find out more.
