Is Tango something you have been wanting to try for a while and, until now, never did?
Or, perhaps, you have danced Tango, but got too busy lately, and stopped doing it?
Is Tango where you go to meet people? Is it an activity you share with your loved one, your favorite friend?
In any case, 2013 has to be the Year of Tango. It was already a century ago, in 1913:
"1913 was the Year of the Tango all over the world. Tango was the couple dance everyone wanted to learn. In that year the Tango Teas began at the Waldorf Hotel in London, picking up the fashion of Tes Dansants from Paris, and a grand Tango ball held in the Selfridges department store was declared the event of the season. All Europe was dancing the Tango. There were many disapproving voices, but the mania had bitten. Clothing fashions, already steering away from the restrictions of the Victorian corsets and hooped skirts, changed more quickly under the influence of Tango. It is said that women in Paris abandoned the corset in order to dance it." Christine Denniston.
