Let’s Just Chat For A Moment About the Argentine Tango as a dance.
How Did The Argentine Tango Originate?
The Argentine Tango is a nostalgic dance which originated on the streets of Buenos Aires towards the end of the 19th century. It has grown in popularity over the years amongst social dancers. The music is a lot more varied and modern than the conventional ballroom tango music with elements of blues and rock music, which is why at some dances the Argentine Tango alone is danced all evening.
What Does The Argentine Tango Look Like?
Here is a good example:
The movements consist mainly of walks with the feet making close contact with the floor at all times. The follower normally walks with her legs outside of her partners. It is danced counterclockwise around the floor If you are dancing the Argentine Tango at a social, cutting across the middle of the floor is strongly frowned upon.
Argentine Tango is a bit different, a bit more dangerous and a bit more exciting than the normal tango. The reason for this is that the woman must allow the man to utterly ‘control her body.’ It is danced in an embrace which can vary from wide at arm’s length to a very close chest on chest.
Apart from having to balance herself perfectly with his frame, she has to feel the slightest hint of him stepping forward, so that she can shoot her corresponding foot backward and be ready for any sudden changes he makes.
The lady can occasionally choose to decorate him with her foot or leg, but mostly she is his mirroring puppet. This I know won’t suit a lot of strong-willed women, but on the dance floor, the men always have first say.
Some woman will struggle to come to terms with this imbalance, but this type of connection is very necessary to allow for the correct execution of the Argentine Tango Technique.
With the right partner, the Argentine Tango can be extremely sexy as well as strangely spiritual. The dancers have to give the audience the impression that they have been lovers forever.
In Buenos Aires, it is the quite common to have milongas or gatherings where the Argentine Tango is the dance of the evening. There are however a few rules you need to follow if attending one of these Milongas.
Firstly you have to dance with a partner for at least three songs, even if he dances like a ‘hefalump.’ Woman are never allowed to ask the men to dance. Men tend to try and avoid rejection by simply looking at you and jerking their heads towards the dance floor if they want to dance with you.
Whatever way you choose, the Argentine Tango might just be the dance for you, and if you enjoy ballroom dancing, then you simply have to give it a go.
