The Tango originated in the 1880s in Argentina and Uruguay. In American history, the Tango make its first appearance between 1910-1914. It was an instant hit with the public for its intriguing, asymmetrical, and sophisticated patterns.
Thanks to its universal music with many types of sub-styles, the Tango has continued to prosper around the globe. However, among the dances that came into being in the early 20th century, only the Tango style has prospered and enjoyed this much popularity.
The Tango is one of the most highly stylized ballroom dances. The staccato movement of the feet and the flexed knees, highlight the emotional style of the dance. It is dramatic with measured crossing steps and poised pauses. The tango’s characteristic in dancing close to the partner might be the main reason for its universal popularity.
