Embrace The Tango
The sensual tango is often one of the most stunning to see on the floor, but did you know that there are three different types? The Argentine, the American, and the International can be found on dance floors throughout the world, but you are probably most familiar with the American and the International. The Argentine was developed in Buenos Aires in an attempt to mimic the Spanish version, but the Argentine featured the closed position. Dancers of this version interpret the music however they wish, without any predetermined steps. American and International tangoes both feature a much more clear structure, associated with the musical phrasing and timing, but the American allows for more extravagant dance relationships while the International version is far more structured in order to be appropriate for competition.
