Tango Topics | Exploring Your Dance

The word itself has 3 possible definitions as it relates to Argentine Tango. 1.) A Musical Style or Genre which is typically 2 beats in a 4 beat measure time signature. 2.) A particular Style of Dance which matches the style of music. Historically speaking the MUSIC of Milonga (which predates Tango music) created the dance and style of music that we think of today. However, it should be noted that Milonga ‘Portena’ is last iteration of the Style of Milonga music and could not have created Tango as we know it today. No, that honor goes to its progenitor Milonga Criolla! 3.) The Event that we dance at, a Tango dance party.
