Writings

We offer for free download our translation of El Tango Argentina de Salon by Nicanor Lima.  Published about 1916 in Argentina, this is the earliest known tango dance manual from Argentina and, in our opinion, the clearest and most complete historical description of early tango available.  Our translation has the original Spanish side by side with the English translation.  Both texts are searchable.  There is a full table of contents, and footnotes help to clarify the meaning (or point out ambiguities or inconsistencies).

See also our videos illustrating Lima's steps and figures, chapter by chapter.
