The tango that we dance and teach is faithful to its origins in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is a social, couples' dance that grew out of the culture of that region, largely over the first half of the last century, and whose unique character has engendered world-wide appeal. It is inseparable from tango music, which has its own history and ties to the cultural development of Buenos Aires.
 
 
 
Unlike the tango typically seen on stage or television, the authentic dance is enjoyed by ordinary people who can learn to express the music as they move extemporaneously on the dance floor. Dancing tango involves use of the natural mechanics of body motion that we employ in our everyday activities: walking, standing, turning. To dance tango, we extend the use of these natural actions so that we can do them as a couple, responding fluidly to each other's movements, allowing the two of us to move as one.
 
To quote an apt description, "One mind, one heart, four legs."
