About This Dance

Tango is like a seduction. You must dance it with fire and passion. American Style Tango is a smooth dance that travels around the floor counter clockwise.Tango has a modified frame where couples dance much closer together requiring the man’s right hand to be down in the middle of the ladies back. Tango requires slightly bent knees at all times so there is no rise and fall.Tango music is played in 4/4 time at about 120 – 128 beats per minute.
