Argentine Dance Styles


The forerunner of the Modern Tango. The Argentine Tango or Tango Argentino was created by the Gauchos in Buenos Aires. It was actually an attempt on their part to imitate the Spanish dance except that they danced it in a closed ballroom position.  The essence of Argentine tango is about life and, especially, about the relationship between a man and a woman.  The dance is called "the history of love - for three minutes."


The Milonga is a Spanish dance first originated in Andalusia.  As the fascinating music travelled the world it assumed various aspects. In Buenos Aires the Gauchos danced it in what is called a closed position, in the lower class cafes. Here their interpretation of it emerged into what today is our Tango. The Milonga enjoyed a popular resurgence some years ago through the Juan Carlos Copes group who performed it the world over.


A beautiful dance utilising classic Viennese style waltz music with an Argentine Tango edge to it. Most of the steps used in Tango & Milonga can be used but with slightly adapted timing. Slightly more challenging but well worth the effort.
