Tango (now WITH video)

In the phonetic alphabet, Tango represents the letter T. According to Wiki, the Tango dance originated in Rio de la Plata and was first known as tango criollo. Today, there are different types of tango dance such as Argentine tango or Uruguayan tango. Popularly and among tango dancing circles, the authentic tango is considered to be the one which is closest to that originally danced.

  6. They say the tango is one of the most difficult dances to perform correctly, what with all the emotion involved.

  7. what I enjoy about watching the Tango is how in control the female is, the fight that goes on.

    popped in to say thanks for the visit and sorry I was out - happy A-Zing - we are so nearly at the end:)

  8. I've always wanted to dance the Tango. I took lessons once with my husband (ballroom dancing.) He yelled at me the entire time. "Stop leading!" We never got as far as learning the Tango. Darn it! I wish we did. :(

  9. thank you all for your comments. I'm sorry you didn't get to SEE the Tango as well as read about as I intended. Apparently blogger decided not to include the video that was part of the post which was there last night when I checked. I may try to find it and re-post - if possible - but I will definitely be letting blogger know they have a problem.

    Tango looks like such a difficult dance to do. I admire those who do it.

  19. A tango is certainly fun to watch and dream about being able to do. Alas, it is not to be!
