Tango - Captivating & Inspirational

Tango in Silouhettesilhouette6 The principal objective of Tango Fantástico is to promote the art and culture of Argentine Tango through instruction and demonstration.

Often described as the seductive dance of one body with four legs, Argentine Tango is an expressive dance that follows artistic lines which are both improvised and led.  The dancers become the music and the music is the dance.

The tango embrace is close, soft and warm. Complicated improvised patterns are executed with precision and elegance; the tangling and unraveling of intertwined legs, deliberate and poised.  The fluid movement of the dancers is captivating and unique - an improvised dance is never repeated.
