The Tango emerged, in the closing years of the Nineteenth Century, from the squalid immigrant ghettos of Buenos Aires. As a
song, the Tango was the consolation of man in music. But the song soon demanded further expression and the dance was born.
The Tango became almost an anthem for the people and symbolised their spirit, the spirit of Canyengue. For a while the Tango
was banned and forced underground to be danced in the shadowy corners of back street bars and the brothels of Buenos
Aires. Here the Tango became even more sensuous and daring and, by the time it was once again permitted, had acquired the
flavour of forbidden fruit.
Then the Tango emigrated to Paris and the dance of the back streets was introduced to the salons of the World.
Today an exciting revival of the original and authentic style of Argentine Tango is being enjoyed throughout the dancing world.
