The tango is a lovely, vivacious dance. Created by the Gauchos in Buenos Aires, it was actually an attempt on their part to imitate the Spanish dance in a closed ballroom position. Eventually, the Tango became a worldwide sensation. And fortunately, it is not the most difficult dance to learn. For simple instructions on how to tango, watch this instructional video.
The basic steps for a tango involve facing your partner and clasping hands in the traditional style. Take three steps forward (assuming you are leading) and one step to the side. This will give you the fundamentals for the tango. If you want to know more advanced Tango techniques, the professional dance instructors here at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio can help.
