Tango



Tango is a social dance and a musical genre that originated in the area of La Boca in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It spread initially to Uruguay and to the rest of the world soon after that. The musical styles that evolved together with the dance are also known as "tango".

Early tango was known as tango criollo, or simply tango. Today, there are many tango dance styles, including Argentine Tango, Uruguayan Tango, Ballroom tango (American and International styles), Finnish tango and vintage tangos. The Argentine tango is often regarded as the "authentic" tango since it is closest to that originally danced in Argentina and Uruguay, though other types of tango have developed into mature dances in their own right.

Music and dance elements of tango are popular in activities related to dancing, gymnastics, figure skating, synchronized swimming, etc., because of its dramatic feeling and its cultural associations with romance and love.
