Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina is the tango capital of the world. This improvised and passionate dance was born in the bordellos and immigrant neighbourhoods of the city in the late 1800s.
On my recent visit to Argentina, I wanted to find out what the whole tango fuss was all about and discovered that to experience the real tango you need to get away from the Broadway-esque stage shows and find the Milongas – tango dances housed in former cafes, community centres and even old basketball courts. Normally, when watching a show, you are purely a spectator, in the Milonga, you have the chance to be one of the active characters!
Immerse yourself in the world of Tango starting off with a private lesson where you will pick up the basic steps and moves of the dance. Then onto a Milonga – a true Buenos Aires Tango Adventure! Sitting at a table in one of the famed dance halls you will watch couples locked in a passionate embrace as they sweep across the crowded floor.
At the Milongas you will have the opportunity to see talented, unknown Milongueros and you will be able to share the dance floor with them. Your private personal tango partner will invite you to the dance floor to practice your newly acquired tango skills!
