Tango Argentine

Tango Argentine

The Argentinian Tango originated in the Rio de la Plata in Argentina. It was born at the end of the 19th century.
When the Tango arrived in Europe in the 20th century, it was prized by the families of the bourgeois. These were the families who danced at the time to conquer women. Then, in 1929, after the crisis, the Tango lost its popularity. It was danced only in the salons, during the competitions of dance, as well as in the society of the Rio de la Plata.

The rhythmic form of the Tango is measured in 2 or 4 quite pronounced times. It is an improvised dance, where one does not try to guess the steps. It is enough for the woman to follow the man who guides her in the march, transferring her weight to the right moment.

In addition, the tango can be danced on different musical forms: the tango, the milongas and the waltz.

Class Instructor 

Jean-Sébastien

I embarked on social dancing with the Swing in 1991. After my arrival in Montreal, when I began my graduate studies, I turned to Latin dances and dances. I loved Salsa, which kept me busy from 2000 to 2010. By the end of this period, I had a professional training in Ballroom, which I taught for 4 years. It is also here that I discovered the Argentinian Tango, which quickly became my most intense passion.

I quickly realized that the limitless depth of this dance, as well as the beauty and complexity of its music, would give me the opportunity to discover more and to express myself through multiple styles. I now devote myself exclusively to it as a dancer, DJ and teacher. My interests are musicality, technical aspect, and teaching methods.
