The world’s fastest growing dance and M&N Dance’s specialty! The Argentine Tango is characterized by its passion and sensuality. Since it is an improvisational dance, both in its patterning and its musicality, it is always intriguing and never the same from one partner to the next or even from one song to the next. Its seemingly complicated footwork including Ganchos (hooks), Barridas (sweeps), and Sacadas (displacements) for example, make it very interesting to watch. It is such a great Dance to learn about partnership, footwork and control! There are many styles of dancing Argentine Tango (Milonguero Style, Salon Style, Nuevo Tango, Stage Tango, etc.) and also three different dances to learn from it (Argentine Tango, Milonga and Vals). We highly recommend you try it! You won’t regret it!
