    What we're about

    What is Argentine Tango? Argentine Tango is a dance born in the poor and low class establishments in the Rio de Plata region of South America as a mixture of different music and dance cultures as a result of an influx of immigrants in that area in the end of the 19th century. Its roots included the Cuban habanera, the African candombe, as well as the other European dances. The Argentine Tango is mostly characterized as a dance held in a close embrace, with intricate leg movements that are entirely led by the man. Most people confuse Argentine Tango with the Ballroom tango as commonly portrayed in the media, where the couples need to wear extravagant costumes and execute acrobatic lifts, jumps and leg movements. In fact, Argentine Tango is a subtle, sophisticated social dance. It is a dance meant to be felt, not seen. It is a language spoken by the body that allows two people to move as one. Why should I dance Argentine Tango? People dance Argentine Tango for difference reasons. Most started dancing because they wanted to find a new hobby, or want to meet new friends. Some say they enjoyed the music first, others because they saw a TV show showing a different type of "show tango" and was intrigued. Slowly they all realize it never was what they originally expected, but become captivated by the feeling evoked by dancing Tango, the feeling of connecting to another person, the feeling that they are able to "talk" to someone through the dance, be it a friend or stranger. I have no dance experience. Can I dance Argentine Tango? Of course! If you can walk, you can dance Argentine Tango! Do I need a partner? Argentine Tango is a dance that is totally improvised. The man leads and the lady follows, which is why no fixed partner is needed to dance tango. Where can I dance Argentine Tango? We offer regular group classes of different levels as well as private classes. Throughout the week there are practicas (practice sessions) and milongas (dance parties) organized by different organizers that take place in different dance studios / bars. After learning the basics (around 8 classes), you can start going to milongas where you will meet people in the tango community (around 200 active dancers in HK) to dance, drink, chat and listen to beautiful tango music played by the DJ.
