It only takes you to Tango: Discover the allure of this Argentine dance for yourself.
We’ve all dreamt of doing the tango so now we’re launching an adult class dedicated to Argentine Tango, led by experienced and CDTA-accredited instructors, Bobbi and Patricia Lusic.
Tango first appeared around 1880 in the streets and brothels of Buenos Aires’ lower-class districts and was so revolutionary that it was not considered socially acceptable in Argentina for many years.
It gained popularity in Paris around 1915 and became part of the mainstream dance circuit. In 1921, then little-known actor Rudolph Valentino tangoed in the silent film Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. As the top grossing film of the year, it made Valentino a superstar and inspired a North American tango craze. Despite being suppressed for many years by Argentina’s military dictatorship, tango survived as a hidden art form and has become one of the most popular dances in the world.
Thanks to modern TV reality dance shows, tango is reaching a wider audience with its captivating music and exciting dance moves. It’s the perfect way to get fit, meet new people and learn an amazing new skill.
The ACT’s classes are in 4 week blocks on Wednesdays starting on September 25th, 2019. Come with a friend, partner, or by yourself!
