About the Tango Argentino

Tango is full of stereotypes. Many people call it passion and imagine a couple, the heads rejected from each other and with a rose in the teeth. Some think that it should be performed only on stage. The woman of course must wave her leg around her partner or much better – put it on his shoulder. Hmmm…

In fact, Argentine tango is a social dance. Its roots are not the show. It is, first of all, a way of interacting with a partner and a music. Knowing how to stand and  how to understand one another, you can dance with anyone who has the same skills. Tango is a secret for two, a cure for melancholy and an art of feeling.

If you decide to visit a lesson of Tango Argentino in Vilnius, you do not need to take a rose or a hat with you. Comfortable shoes, clothes and good mood are enough to communicate with enthusiastic and friendly tangueros.

By the way, “tanguero” designates a person who dances Tango Argentino. They regularly attend milongas, which is how we call the dancing place. On such events tangueros use a special code of behavior – “codigos”. It includes  rules about navigation on the dance floor, as well as some etiquette, like the “cabeceo”, which means that invitation should always be done through eye contact.

In some ways Argentine Tango is not only a dance but an art of living or a philosophy. There is also no hint of falsehood.

The dance is not built on figures to remember. The most important thing is connection between a man and woman. People often say that a couple in tango is a creature with four legs and with one heart. He leads – she follows.

Some people think that Tango Argentino is a simple dance. There are steps, turns and flying legs… What can be difficult there? You learned – so dance. What is there to talk about? And why should we dedicate so many publications to this hobby? 

Not only to publications, music and films are dedicated to this dance. But whole lives of people. When you dive into it, you will be surprised and even frightened that all this time such a huge world existed near you, and you didn’t even suspect it.

Starting to dance, you will understand why love to Tango Argentino can’t be cured. The famous maestro Carlos Gavito said: “Tango is my best medicine, my best friend and my best love! It never betrayed me, and so did I!”.
