I have been dancing tango since February 2005. I love everything about it - the music, the people, the variability of movements, the connection between dance partners. Over the past year, I had the opportunity of creating tango programs in freshmen and upperclassmen dorms. I think Argentine tango is a beautiful dance and I hope more of my peers will get involved in tango in their college years, because it is never too early or too late to begin learning!

Tango is an interesting dance form because it involves significant improvisation from both partners. While at first the learning curve felt relatively steep, once you know a few basic steps and good form, the process becomes a lot more interesting. The free form is particularly attractive, as it allows for individual expression. As Horacio says, the most important thing is the music and the lady (depending, of course on the gender of your partner). You can email me at email@example.com

I've been dancing basically since I could walk, but I've only been learning the tango for about a year. I enjoy it because of its emphasis on the connection between the partners. Tango is an interesting dance because it allows dancers freedom with the rhythm. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Horacio Arcidiacono is the founder and main instructor of the Buenos Aires’ Tango Academy.
